Fountain Flat Drive
Fountain Flat Drive Yellowstone Orientation Map    

Fountain Flat Drive is the access point for many different activites. At the front of the drive is the Nez Perce Picnic area, situated at the confluence of the Firehole River and Nez Perce Creek. The picnic area is closed between 11p.m. and 6a.m. At the end of the mile-long Fountain Flat Drive is the trailhead for the Fountain Freight Road, a wide gravel path 3.9 miles long (7.8 miles round trip). Hiking as well as biking are allowed on the Fountain Feight Road where travelers will see the Ojo Caliente Springs just 0.3 of a mile down the path, and views that you can't see from the road suddenly appear as you make your way farther down the trail. Keep an eye out for the elk and bison that frequently travel through the meadows of Fountain Flat Drive in the spring.
