This is a short stroll of 100 yards to see a magnificent falls on the Yellowstone River, surrounded by "towers" of eroded rock. Tie this stroll in after doing Mt Washburn as we did. We then went on up to the picnic area. This is too short to consider a hike, but not to be missed.

There's a short, easy hike from the Tower parking lot to the viewpoint overlooking the waterfall. The view of the waterfall is good, but not great, and the area is very "touristy." As others have already said, it's not worth going out of your way to see.

I felt what separates Tower fall from other falls is your close proximity to the falls. It allows you to feel the immense power of the falling water. The road was closed on our last visit, so we wanted to see it this time. We felt it was worth the drive out here, and we did glimpse a black bear... More

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.
