Tucked away in the northwestern corner of the Midway Geyser Basin, Fairy Falls (197ft) is a popular hike. Beyond Fairy Falls the trail continues to a hidden thermal area at the base of the Twin Buttes. The geysers are undeveloped, and you’re likely to have them to yourself – a stark contrast to the throngs surrounding Grand Prismatic Spring below.

The trail splits off from Fountain Freight Rd just past the new Grand Prismatic Spring overlook.
