Tufa Terrace Trail

Tufa Terrace Trail begins above the Grand Promenade at Stevens Balustrade. The trail is named for the massive tufa (calcium carbonate) deposits around it. For millennia, the springs flowed down the mountainside, forming the tufa teraces seen here and along the Grand Promenade. The trail comes back to the Grand Promenade, crosses it, and winds down alongside the Hot Water Cascade to Arlington Lawn.
