Excellent Falls

The falls really look incredible as part of the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. Be sure to see the falls from a few different viewpoints along the Canyon Drive.

This is a beautiful fall with an amazing view. You can see it far rom the Artistic Point or from various spots along the canyon drive. It's good to go down the Uncle Tom trail, which offers a close view of the fall and rainbow!!.

Visited the Lower Falls while in Yellowstone on my first trip. Saw it from both the brink of the lower falls, and from Artist's Point. Definitely worth the time to do these short hikes into the viewing areas.

We'd seen it in the Fall along with a million other travelers but this past winter it was spectacular - ice and snow made the views awesome - try it

In 1872 Congress declared Yellowstone the World's first National Park. The geyser filled preserve that sprawls through Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana still has it's heat and fizz. Old Faithful still sends its plume into the sky every 90 minutes, and in the mesmerizing Fountain Paint Pot, mud still burbles with volcanic gases. It's a short walk from the parking to... More

So beautiful...short walk from parking area. We walked up the trail, turned the corner and saw the most beautiful rainbow at the base of the falls. I think this happens around 9:30 or 10 and is absolutely worth planning your trip to view the falls around trying for the rainbow. It is a special memory of Yellowstone.

Fantastic walk down the trail to see a massive waterfall. Amazing picture opportunity and views. The hike back up the trail is somewhat difficult but doable with several stops.

Visiting here is absolutely gorgeous!! We came here close to midday, and it was a perfect time. The lighting is amazing at that time, where the falls are brilliant!! It's an easy walk down, for my older friends in their 60's did it quite easily. It's also very very nice to take a walk to the right to see the... More
