Keplar Cascades

Link to enlarged image.


  • Type: Tiered Cascade
  • Height: 100-150 Feet
  • Stream: Firehole River
  • Name, origin: In 1881, Park Superintendent P. W. Norris honored Kepler Hoyt, “the intrepid 12-year old son of Governor John Hoyt, of WY, who unflinchingly shared in all of the hardships, privations, and dangers of the exploration of his father.” Kepler and his father explored Yellowstone in 1881 with a small group. They were searching for a practical route into Yellowstone from the Wyoming Territory.1
  • Fun Facts: The overlook is just feet away from the parking lot. At the south end of the parking lot are parking and the trailhead for Lone Star Geyser, a beautiful geyser well worth the 2.5 one-way hike on an old service road.
  • Location: Located 2.7 miles south of the Old Faithful overpass between Old Faithful and West Thumb.
