The lower falls of yellowstone is one of iconic views in all of Yellowstone. It's incredible to think about the volume of water going over the falls at any given time. The falls are worth a visit and make sure to take plenty of pictures. The biggest thing is to stay on the trail at all costs. Do not wander... More

These falls are even more spectacular than the upper falls. Lots of great trails and overlooks. Note the glacial boulder near Inspiration Point. Great photo opportunities.

No words to describe the majesty of this place. Great photo place. Parking can be a problem sometimes you need to park faw away and walk. Most of the falls have to be reached by walking a distance and that can sometimes be a problem. Also long lines at the bathroom can be a problem. Also the walls of rock... More

This was a beautiful site to see. An absolute must in Yellowstone. If you can manage the Uncle Tom's Trail hike, I highly recommend taking that. It gives you the absolute best view of the falls.

Loved the hike from our room to the falls. Easy walk. Some views of the falls were steep climbs but worth it.

As others have mentioned this switchback trail has over 600 feet of elevation change but there are lots of places to stop with benches which you may want to use (at least on the way up). Its always nice to get a vantage point of a waterfall where the water crest over the edge and this one doesn't disappoint.

This is a short and steep set of switchbacks in the North Rim to an incredible view overlooking the river falls and downstream at the Canyon. It is about a half a mile but around a 600 feet elevation change. This was my favorite viewpoint of the YNP/Grand Teton trip.
