[Buried Geyser Description provided by William P. Moats.]

Buried Geyser has both frequent and powerful eruptions. However, in spite of such notable activity, it has been largely ignored by geyser gazers. Buried Geyser lies near the base of a hill about 1/2 mile east-southeast of Lone Star Geyser , on the south side of the Firehole River. With no trail leading to it, Buried Geyser can be accessed by fording the river near Lone Star, or by crossing the river on the Shoshone Lake Trail bridge about 1/2 mile west of Lone Star, then backtracking.

Situated at the upper end of a narrow barren drainage, Buried Geyser is easy to locate because of its frequent activity and the steam from its eruptions. Those planning a visit and having a Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) receiver can travel to it by hiking to the following latitude/longitude: 44 degrees 24.92 minutes North, 110 degrees 48.06 minutes West.

Buried Geyser was recognized as a perpetual spouter in 1973, and has been known to have periodic or true geyser activity since 1983.
