This is an impressive waterfall. I enjoyed stopping and walking up to the viewing area, but I don't think this is a 'must-see' attraction. If you have time, it's worth it, but there are much more interesting things to stop and see in Yellowstone.

Tower Fall was the first waterfall we stopped to look at, so it set the bar as far as waterfalls go. We enjoyed our time spent there. It's a short walk from the parking lot to the viewing area, and you can see the waterfall from a few different angles. It's not a huge waterfall like some of the others... More

Being this our last day in Yellowstone, it wasn't as impressive as other waterfalls, It's for sure a good one and only requires a short walk to the overlook from the parking lot. The switchback trail going down was closed so we only managed to see it from the overlook and its beginning from across the road.

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
