The area around the Waterfall is a known habitat for Black bears for years. There is a mother black bear with her three cubs and and another family of 3 roaming in this area nowadays. The falls are good but the sight of black bears made our Trip. Make sure to take your binoculars along with you. The road is... More

When we visited, the trail to the base of the falls was closed. However the short five minute, level trail to the overlook was open. It was quite crowded and we noted several people ignoring the sign and taking the closed trail anyway. We saw a mother grizzly bear and two cubs in the ravine just below the trail, and... More

The Tower Falls are nice. It's a very short walk from the parking lot. But it's not amazing. So if you are prioritizing your time in the park then I would skip it. But if you are driving by and have 5 minutes, take a look. It's pretty.

The waterfall is not that great. It's like any other waterfall that you might have seen. The good part is it's just about 100 yards from the parking lot. IMO - it's a good idea to stop here in case you are in the Tower-Roosevelt area, but not worth it if you plan to go here only for the Tower... More

On the northwest section of the loop do not skip a quick stop at Tower Fall. Ample parking and a short, easy walk to the overlook for the falls. Great views.

On Grand Loop Road, southeast of Roosevelt Lodge, park at the Tower general store lot and walk the short, tenth of a mile to Tower Fall Overlook. Interesting rocks provide the backdrop for the Tower fall. Beyond the overlook, a 1/3 mile trail offers nice views of the Yellowstone River. Light is best early in the morning.

Easy parking, accessible, "flush toilets" and then you have a beautiful waterfall with basalt cliffs and the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone! Take more than a moment to enjoy this site in Yellowstone NP

If this was in any other national park, it would've become a big deal but since it is in Yellowstone and there are so many magical things here that this place becomes overshadowed. It is still pretty beautiful. The hike to the falls is easy and it has restrooms and restaurants ... so if you are driving in the area... More
