Full of vivid colours, Grand Prismatic Spring is nature at its best. Located in the Midway Geyser Basin, the spring is the park’s largest hot spring. It measures approximately 370 feet in diameter and is over 121 feet deep. The vivid colours in the spring are the result of pigmented bacteria in the microbial mats that grow around the edges of the mineral-rich water.

    • The spring is free to visit 24 hours a day between April 20 and Nov. 6 (when roads to the attraction are open). But to access the park, you must buy a seven-day park pass. Additional details can be found on the National Park Service's Old Faithful Area page.
