This is a spot that must be included on a visit to Yellowstone. Plenty of parking. Walk down to the river. Though it the pathway will only be open when the snow has cleared.

The falls are amazing! If you go to the north rim, you can walk down a switch back trail and arrive at the top of the falls. It's well worth the walk.

Your Yellowstone visit should include this feature. Handicap and "senior" friendly. Impossible to take a bad picture of it. We saw it in June but it would be interesting to see in all four seasons.

One of the highlights of our trip!! I will rate the whole view second only to artist point. There is a moderate hike to reach lower falls. You have to walk up and down the hill on a rough terrain but it is very much doable. Also the close view of the lower river falls makes the whole hike worth... More

1 - Artist Point: here you'll see the FRONTAL view of it. Easy walk from parking lot, easily accessible with baby strollers and wheelchairs. Beautiful sceneries. 2 - Uncle Tom: here you will actually be at the BOTTOM LEFT CORNER of the falls. Warning, hundred of steps down, strollers and wheelchairs NOT accessible. And the climb back up is NOT... More

The view of the falls is amazingly beautiful.. Do not miss it if you visit Yellowstone National Pak. The viewing area is crowded with visitors in summer time, but you can still take easily stunning pictures of the falls and their surroundings

The Yellowstone Lower Falls trail is a fairly strenuous climb back out (at least for those over 50 :-) ) but worth it!! Besides a view of the top of the falls you get an awesome view up the Yellowstone River Canyon and get to truly see why it is called the Yellowstone River and Park

You must see the falls. One of the high points in the park in spite the tour buses rolling in. We found the trick is to get there early. If you have time, walk the rim.

This is one of the iconic views in YNP. My favorite view is from Artists Point, but you should also consider walking down to the brink of the falls as well. If you have the time [and energy] Uncle Tom's Trail is also recommended.
