About this spot
Liberty Cap is a 45-foot tall (13.7 m) extinct hot spring. As the spring emerged from the ground it laid down dense layers of travertine creating the cone over time. Liberty Cap received its name from the Hayden Expedition in 1871. The cone was thought to resemble the conical hats worn during the French Revolution.
