No view of the south rim of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone is complete without vseeing both Upper and Lower Falls. Tow different perspectives and plenty of photo ops. Winter here is great! Food and restrooms are nearby.

Don't miss the view... With the falls as a background, this is also a great place to see the sun rise...

The viewing platforms giving a magnificent view of the canyon from all angles. The path leading down to the river and a view of the waterfall was an easy walk both ways. Well worth the effort

Great picture opportunity with good lighting off yellow canyon walls. There is an easy accessible view point and another one that requires a walk down that is worth the walk.

This is a must-see in the park. Beautiful. Hike is taxing, but I wouldn't miss it. There are views apart from making the long hike to be hear the falls.
