Yellowstone National Park is known for some of the amazing views that it offers. Calcite Springs Overlook is one of those views. An 800 ft. path will take you along the edge of a deep canyon where the Yellowstone River flows swiftly hundreds of feet below you. Mountain backdrops, unique cliff formations, and a thermal feature in the distance on the banks of the river is what you can expect at this must-see wonder. There are some stairs to go up and down but it is very easy. Keep an eye out for black bears on your way to or from this area. They are often spotted wandering in the grassy woods on the side of the road.
