Can you believe roughly 37,500 gallons per second over a falls with the spray when it hits bouncing almost as high as the 109 foot falls? It is true and spectacular. Volume can run higher than 60,000 gallons per second at high water. Park and take the short jaunt down to the viewing area. Then, walk up river towards the... More

Natural pristine beauty. Picturesque. We took the Yellow Stone Bus Tour which brought us right up to the falls. It was very easy to access and a beautiful place to take photos.

The lower river falls are beautiful. It's amazing to see how the Falls flow. This site is breathtaking also.

This area is in the Canyon area and again it is spectacular. The North and South Rims with the Falls (Upper and Lower) are within easy driving distance of each other. Very accessible to all ages and abilities. Do not forget your camera- you will definitely want pictures.

We spent the day touring the grand canyon. We toured both the north and south rim. We have multiple pictures of the upper and lower falls from different aspects. We enjoyed the ranger lead bird talk at artist point. I recommend any of the ranger lead 20 min talks. In general, we would pick a yellowstone section, spend our day... More

Drove the lower rim drive to see the lower falls, got there about a hour before dark and saw 2 bull elk in velvet (4x4 and 5x5) grazing on the opposite the side as the entrance to the lower falls. The overlooks are awesome. Each spot had their own spectacular view of the falls. I think this is a must... More

First we hiked up to the upper falls area, and came across two massive Bull Elks dining on fresh grass in a meadow. Then we hiked down Uncle Tom's ladder to a fantastic viewing spot 600 feet below the top of the lower falls. Probably my second favorite thing to do in all of Yosemite. First of all it's a... More

Really this hike is a three-fer. Not only do you get an amazing up-close view of the lower falls and an energetic hike, you also get some of the very best views of Yellowstone's Grand Canyon. The trail is paved although families with very small children may find that they end up carrying them.

This lower fall is worth the visit. We went sometime in the afternoon and it was not crowded. The Colourful view of the canyon and the fall was worth the visit. It was a nice cool walk and one need to climb a few steps to view from the artists point. The bright colours and the sun rays falling on... More

A slightly challenging trail (3/8 mile and a 600ft drop in elevation) gets you an incredible view right at the top of the falls.
