This is a must see beautiful, natural pool at Yellowstone. Is a short (1.5 mile) hike from Old Faithful that is relatively flat and paved. You can definitely do it with a stroller or wheelchair. Absolutely worth it- and there are plenty of springs and geysers to see along the way.
This hot spring is very colorful, but as the sign next to the pool says, it's fading glory. There's not much description of the pool itself other than how it's been filled with trash and coins. The walk is either 1.4milsa from the Old Faithful visitor center, some shade along the way, and several other geysers along the boardwalk or asphalt path. Good to see on its own, but small compared to the size and colors of the Grand Prismatic Spring.
