Even though you know it’s coming, and are ready for it to blow its top, the predictable spout of Old Faithful geyser won’t ever disappoint. Arguably Yellowstone’s most popular attraction—and the gold standard of geysers—Old Faithful has been impressing visitors since the Washburn Expedition first explored the area in the summer of 1870. Today, hundreds of people gather around the geyser to watch its boiling fountain, which on average shoots up 145 feet every 35-120 minutes. Thanks to years of careful monitoring, geologists and park staff have pinpointed the cycle of Old Faithful’s sudden eruptions, and info and times on the next expected eruption is found on the visitor center next door. To beat the crowds, consider visiting in the early morning or in the moments just before dusk—and if the eruption schedule aligns with sunrise be sure to set an alarm, since watching Old Faithful spout water at dawn is an experience you’ll never forget. 

Practical Info

On 90% of occasions, the predicted eruption time of Old Faithful is accurate to within 10 minutes. Busiest times are from 12-6pm, and interpretive exhibits can be found next door at the Old Faithful Visitor Education Center. From West Yellowstone, expect the drive to Old Faithful to take about 50 minutes, whereas Mammoth Hot Springs and the southern entrance are about 1 hour and 20 minutes away. Because the Grand Loop Road is closed in winter, it’s only possible to visit by car from May-mid October.
