The lower falls of the Yellowstone River are located in the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. You cannot appreciate the immensity of the lower falls until you see it. The canyon itself is over 20 miles long and the falls themselves drop more than 300 feet. The volume of water varies with the season but is more than 5,000 gallons... More

The waterfalls and hitting this road and stopping at all the falls and walking into them is one of the best experiences you can have. The walks are easy and close, but watch young children carefully. It is so beautiful and incredible, especially in the spring run off.

Yellowstone has 45 named waterfalls and this is one you must see. We only had 3 days in the park and I picked the highest recommended must sees in the park

Lovely view. Seen at a distance from Artists point, or even better, up close from Uncle Tom's trail. Don't miss.

Beautiful falls - take Uncle Tom's trail for the best view, but remember, when going down that you will have to come backed up. Well worth it if you can do it. If you're out of shape, expect to be stiff the next day LOL

You have to check out Lower Yellowstone River Falls. There are a number of different viewpoints, and each of them is impressive! The falls are so colorful!

This is another one of the MUST STOPS in YSNP. It's a great place to see the Canyon and a beautiful waterfall.

There are so many things to see and do in Yellowstone. The Falls were so beautiful. You cannot take a bad picture there.

Look for the 'Brink of Lower Falls' on the map, or road signs. The hike down on a concrete trail will take you as close as you can to the top of the falls. This is where you will realize the might of the falls. Again, the climb back is up is slightly tiring (if you have already done the... More
