Fly Geyser is a small geothermal geyser that is the result of man-made drilling in 1916 when water well drilling accidentally penetrated a geothermal source. Water is constantly released, reaching 5 feet in the air at a temperature up to 200 °F. The geyser has formed several travertine terraces, creating 30 to 40 pools over an area of 74 acres. Fly Geyser is on private property (Fly Ranch) so you can’t freely access it. Fly Ranch is open to small, guided three-hour nature walks on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Tickets for the walk are available up to four weeks in advance at the following website: https://blackrockdesert.ticketleap.com/fly-geyser-nature-walks-2020/
