This is another interesting place to visit in Yellowstone national park. We need to walk inside from the parking lot to see this beautiful water fall, Beau tiful falls in the midst of the rock and big trees is a beautiful scenic place. Take photos of the fall amidst greenery and rocks. Picnic tables and toilet facilities available. The store... More

Tower Falls used to be a wonderful place to visit. There was a giant teetering rock at the top of the falls that was there for hundreds if not thousands of years until it fell a decade or two ago. The best part of tower falls used to be the hike to the bottom of the falls. However, the trail... More

Tough on handicapped. Large crowds but worth the walk for quick glimpse. No need to stay long here. Hard climb for seniors, lots of foreigners.

If you stop at the place where it says "tower fall", you're at the wrong place. It doesn't offer you a great view, not good at all. You should rather keep your eyes alert when driving past tower - Roosevelt and stop onto the side wherever you see a great view. Then you'll be greeted with an attraction worth 5/5

There are over 300 waterfalls in Yellowstone, and we found about a third of them driving and hiking the place, but this one is large, special, unique, and powerful. If it doesnt move you, seek immediate medical attention, you may be dead. Quit drag racing your wsy through the place and get off your bottom and walk a bit of... More

There's a very short stroll with an impressive view of the falls. Beyond that, there's a switchback trail you can take that goes down almost to the river. I think it was about a half mile - very pretty. Off in the woods near the parking lot, there's a black bear and her three cubs. (Early June 2014)

Please don't get me wrong. This is a very pretty fall. But I am against paved trails, observation decks, and railings. They scream "I am unnatural" in my face and remind me of those man made plaster imitations of nature's wonders. If you do not worry about the surroundings there is no doubt that you will love it. The observation... More

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
