We came in from the Northeast side of the park, and worked our way down the East side of the loop. This was the first major falls that we came to. It is very impressive.

The road south from Tower Junction is not plowed in the winter, but the road to Tower Fall--and beyond to go farther south on the Chittenden Loop--is groomed for cross-country skiing. The round-trip ski to the waterfall and back to Tower Junction is a fantastic five miles with nearby views of columnar basalt cliffs and more distant views of the... More

Tower falls would be the "must see" feature of most state parks and even many National Parks, but when you have just been to see the Upper and Lower Falls of the Yellowstone it is just a really pretty waterfall. The drop is somewhow more dramatic as Tower Creek drops out of its valley to run a little ways and... More

Tower Falls is nice - you can walk a short way and see it between the trees. Well, take a picture (don't bother to hike to the bottom), get back in the car and drive to Lower Falls instead. If you need to hike downward, take the steps at Uncle Tom's and see the Lower Falls up close - it's... More

It's difficult to rate anything as less than spectacular at Yellowstone, but this is one you can skip. There is a gift shop, rest rooms and picnic tables that are practically in the parking lot, plus lots of people, so this is not a particularly rewarding stop. The falls are in no way outstanding, especially if you have seen the... More

It was very pretty waterfall. We only had time to check out the overlook area. I would like to see what the trail was like but we were short on time. There are flush toilets next to the trail head in which are a sweet deal compared to the pot toliets through out the park. Warning: There is a bunch... More

We did this hike on our drive down to Canton Village. Road work was still ongoing and probably took 45 min longer than otherwise. We hiked down to the overlook but not all the way down to the river since the trail beyond was a little rough. The Falls were nice but not that much more spectacular than the other... More

Tower Falls is beautiful. The surrounding landscape is also breathtaking. The walk to the falls is very quick. We spent more time in the gift shop than we did walking to the falls. There is a hike to get close to the falls, but it really is not worth the view that you get. They are still doing construction in... More

This is part of Yellow Stone National Park and a must see. You will need to see it from both sides and take the trails down to capture all of it.

Roadworks held us up on our way here but it was worth it in the end. The Falls were magnificent and the sun glinted off the water. Do stop here you won't be disappointed.
