    • Observation Point Loop Trail
      Begin at the Firehole River footbridge, just behind the Old Faithful Geyser, and enjoy this moderate 1.1 mile loop hike that provides great views over the Upper Geyser Basin from an overlook.
    • Firehole River
      The nearby Firehole River is the perfect retreat for avid fly fishing enthusiasts. Test your skills for snagging a brown, rainbow, or brook trout.
    • Kepler Cascades
      Just a few miles south of the Inn, the 125 foot tall Kepler Cascades are easy to see from a pull-out off the main road.
  • Historic Facts: Built during the winter of 1903-04, the Old Faithful Inn, Yellowstone National Park, was designed by Robert C. Reamer, who wanted the asymmetry of the building to reflect the chaos of nature. The Inn was built using materials from within the park and cost an initial sum of $165k to construct. Three building phases in 1903, 1913, and 1927, have led to its grandeur today. The Old Faithful Inn is a National Historic Landmark and is one of the few remaining log hotels in the United States.
