What to See
Norris Geyser Basin
Visitors using wheelchairs can see the steam and colors of Porcelain Basin from the museum and view Emerald Spring nearby. But wheelchair travel into Porcelain and Back basins is difficult due to stairs, steep inclines, and uneven ground. Visitors using manual wheelchairs may require assistance; motorized wheelchairs may not have enough power. Consult the area trail guide or ask a ranger to recommend routes.
