Over the years the Yellowstone River has cut deep canyons with its strong current. An upper and a lower waterfall are highlights and a must vista.

Beautiful area of Yellowstone National Park. We hiked to all of the view points and got a different view of the river and the waterfall each time from the North Rim to the South Rim. We even climbed Uncle Tom's staircase which was well worth each tiring step back up!

Beautiful river - very wide in some places. We saw several people fishing on the river, using waders. Watch your kiddos - some places are deep & very fast. Gorgeous veiws & a good place to see animals in the park.

Yellowstone River in Yellowstone NP is a bit of a drive, but well worth it for the view. The waterfalls are simply some of the best in the U.S. The staircase walk down to see the Lower Falls is a classic hike offering a beautiful view of the Falls.

Wow! Yellowstone really is nature at its best. Natural beauty everywhere you look. Lots of driving to get from place to place, in the west side we hiked the bacon grind trail, then drove to the boiling River and stopped at gibbon falls. All this with a 3 month old. We need to come back so much more to see!

We stopped by the bank to enjoy the scenic beauty for a moment. My husband was trying to teach the kids to skip rocks across the face of the water when, suddenly, all of our attention was drawn to jumping fish and a gorgeous cow Elk lying in the cool grass directly across the river from us. What a great.... More
