Don't miss this view. The falls are gorgeous. Totally different from west side of the park. Several different look outs give great photo opportunities.

Beautiful Waterfall. Always had wanted to see it as until the last few years I had only viewed it in pictures. Worth the stop while touring Yellowstone National Park.

This was a must see for my bucket list. It was awesome and much better then expected. Something for America to be proud of. If you you want beauty you need to see it.

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.
