How do I get to the Monument Geyser Basin?
Just after the Gibbon River Bridge, 5 miles south of Norris Junction, you can park and follow the 2 mile round-trip trail to the Monument Geyser Basin. The trail starts out easy along the Gibbon River and then becomes very steep as it climbs 500 feet.
What will I see once I'm there?
This dormant geyser area sits up on a hill above the Gibbon River. You'll find a variety of bizarre looking dormant cones and a few steam vents. Monument Geyser is 8 feet tall and only 2 feet wide. It's a great place to get away from the crowds as it's not often visited.
When can I visit Monument Geyser Basin?
It's only accessible via a 2 mile round-trip hiking trail and best visited during the summer months.
