The waterfall itself isn't one of the world's best, but the setting--Yellowstone's Grand Canyon--is superb and one of the park's highlights.

The central feature of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, the falls can be viewed from numerous locations, including Artist Point. Though less frequently visited, be sure to stop at the brink of the upper falls, which dramatically shows just how much water is going over the lower falls.

The lower Yellowstone River Falls is the largest waterfall in Yellowstone so it is a must see attraction. It offers a 308 foot tall waterfall and is probably the 2nd most photographed spot, second only to Old Faithful. There are many views of the falls from the east such as Inspiration Point and Lookout Point and from the west (Artists... More

Another great stop as you tour this National Park. Be sure to take time to walk over and enjoy. Photos cannot capture the beauty.

Took the trail down to see the lower falls. I did't count them but other people claimed there were 300 steps. People of all ages , shapes, and sizes were making the walk including small children and grandparents. They all made it back I so that is an indication that the walk is not as difficult as some describe it.... More

Loved this. My friend and I went here for a class and we loved walking around. For some reason I was expecting this place to be dry but I was so amazed at how much life here is at yellowstone.

This is very good instead of excellent only because of the walk to the brink of the falls. There is no indication of the distance to the falls overlook. There are 9 switchbacks and some close to the edge hiking. It is all paved, but it was a difficult hike for us, though the view from the bottom made it... More
