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.

Took a short stop here after driving the top part of the figure "8" roads in YS. The water falls is impressive and you are able to get close to it without walking a lot. A nice stop to shop in the visitor center and have some ice cream. The center was very clean and the staff was friendly. It... More

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

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
