But accessibility leaves something to be desired. Not too many years ago, one could walk to its base to experience the perspective masterfully captured by Thomas Moran in 1871-2 but the trail had been closed.

Tower Fall is one of easy access Fall next to the road and the parking lot. It is good for the elder and young kids. There're hiking trail down the hill, but you can still got a good view from the top.

If you have time, stop by for a quick view of this pretty waterfall. It's located just a short walk from the parking lot on a paved trail. When we went (September) the general store was closed so no bathrooms available. Ample parking available at the time we went (around 9:00am).

Tower Fall is a 132 feet drop of Tower Creek and one of the most photographed waterfalls mainly because of its eroded unique volcanic pinnacles which neatly frame its rushing water. It is featured in Yellowstone National Park history as the nearby Bannock Ford on the Yellowstone river was an important travel route for early native Americans and European visitors... More

A great opportunity to see a waterfall if you don't want to walk far. Just a short jaunt down a paved walkway to the overlook. On the downside, you aren't real close to it, and there are tons of people here. Worth the stop just because it is so quick, but I don't know that I would go back. Nice... More

After spending the morning seeing the Canyon falls from several vantage points, the 14yo swore he didn't want to see another waterfall. But we were driving right past it and I said that this one is supposed to more a "Lord of the Rings" style waterfall, so he consented to try it. We all liked it, so definitely recommend it.... More

Nice enough view from the platform at the top of the falls, but had read reviews and wanted to see the falls from the bottom. So we started down and encountered a sign stapled on another sign – “There is no view or access to the base of Tower Falls available beyond this point. Trail ends in ¼ mile” So... More

There are bigger and spectacular falls in Yellowstone. Do this only if it is on your way. The only positive is lookout is only 50 m from the road,behind the general store.
