Located at the southwest end of the lake, The Shoshone Geyser Basin contains one of the highest concentrations of geysers in the World - more than 80 in an area 1,600 by 800 feet (240 m). Hot springs and mudpots dot the landscape between the geyser basin and the lake.
Shoshone Geyser Basin is reached by a 17-mile roundtrip hike that crosses the Continental Divide at Grant's Pass. This basin has no boardwalks, and extreme caution should be exercised when travelling through it. Trails in the basin must be used. Remote thermal areas, such as this, should be approached with respect, knowledge, and care. Be sure to emphasize personal safety and resource protection when entering a backcountry basin.
