This view has been photographed and painted many times and is one of the stops in the park not to be missed. Because of its popularity, crowds can be heavy.

My wife and I recently visited these falls, and they are powerful, and worth a look see. Pull off and njoy.

Well worth the short walk from the parking area. We were here in the morning at the end of September so the crowds were not bad. Will probably visit again in a few years and bring some grand kids.

It is difficult to describe how impressive and beautiful the view is from the lookout point. We traveled in the off season so we did not have to fight the huge crowds. This is a must see stop in Yellowstone.

We viewed the falls from the close and far vantage points. The views are absolutely stunning. The hike down to the lower viewing area was quite strenuous and exciting but not for everyone.

Both upper and lower falls are fantastic... We took the north rim drive in the afternoon/evening and south rim drive in the morning. The falls, canyon and sunlight - all make it just glorious! Must see when you visit Yellowstone.

Both upper and lower falls are beautiful and stunning. The scenery around is spectacular. The gorge is amazing. The colours are gorgeous. The entire place is beyond words. Must go and see for yourself.

Get to the parking lots early if you want to avoid having to wait for a spot to open up. Before 9am is best.
