The falls are absolutely incredible. I could stand there all day and just watch the water. The entire park is wonderful. We stayed at the west entrance to the park and to beat the crowds we entered the park very early each morning. Everyone needs to go to Yellowstone once in their life.

My husband and I did a whitewater rafting trip when we went to Yellowstone. We had a great time. We went in September and the water and weather were perfect. It was a great way to be adventurous, active and see nature's beauty! I would highly recommend this trip.

The river and falls are breathtaking! I took the path down to the little falls. It was quite a steep path and pretty strenuous but totally worth it. The rock formations along the walls were amazing too. A must see at Yellowstone!

Another quick stop along our journey to Glacier National Park. Tight camping but sufficient for a quick stop. Took a nature trail to the Yellowstone River. The water was very swift and the views breath taking.

Hiking down the river was not only beautiful but invigorating and in places challenging. We had perfect weather, low humidity, lots of sunshine and breeze.

Had a great time driving up and down this river. Saw many giants animals including Elk, Bison, Wolf and bear. Great fishing below the falls. Don't miss the rim drives on the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone!

If you wanted to sample the great West of Montana, it could be that its major rivers would give you a route of reference. I have spoken earlier of the Missouri. The Yellowstone is too shallow to harness for energy, but surely amounts to a western trail that allows for a different kind of journey. I would recommend starting where... More
