Description

The park's most easily accessible thermal area, see steam vents and boiling mudpots alongside views of the valley beyond via a sidewalk lined with interpretive signs. It's impossible to miss its white and orange sands along the road (as well as the smell!)

On the Road: Parking is available which connects with the sidewalk exploring the Sulphur Works, one mile north of the park's southwest entrance.

ADA Accessible: Viewable via a paved walkway

Family Friendly: A great and exciting stop along the road with easily accessible thermal features which kids are sure to enjoy.
