Beautiful views! Easy walk to see. The pictures you can take and the area around is beautiful! Be sure to stop and take the time to walk around and look at it from different views.

I have learned in the past what my limitations are when driving on high roads with cliffs/etc. Therefore, I did not drive "canyon drive" or whatever the name of the road was. However, I had read a review here that Artist Point gives the best view of the falls. In addition to the breathtaking view of the falls, there were... More

All of Yellowstone Park is wonderful. But "Artist's Point" on the South Rim canyon drive is the "money shot" for a great photo. Be sure to have a camera capable of modest zoom capability so that you can get that special photo to your preference. That just-right-spot for shooting is just along the walkway before you climb the stairs at... More

This was the highlight of Yellowstone for me. Seeing it on TV or in photos cannot prepare you for the experience of seeing it in person. This is something that should be on every bucket list.

There are several points where you can admire this beauty, and if you are the adventurous kind of person use the trail that goes down close to where one of the falls begin: I would recommend to be in good shape if you use this trail because it is not too wide and the climb can be steep, so it...

This route offers some very beautiful scenic views! The hiking trails down to see the falls are easy to navigate and definitely worth the walk! Great experience! Can't wait to return!

We viewed the upper canyon from the east side which is the "easy" side with shade. It is not the same as the Grand Canyon, but it is beautiful. In places you can see many geological strata that the river has cut through. Other areas are forested. We chose not to descend to the bottom. This area has not had... More

While the grand canyon is not as big or as spectacular as The Grand Canyon National Park, the addition of the lower falls certainly makes it more attractive!

It is impossible to completely rate the majestic beauty of this canyon and falls. Many different hikes take you to different places around the canyon, higher and lower. One can spend most of a day at this part of Yellowstone. Every view is better than the next.

This is one of the areas that does not get the headlines, but the views are fantastic. Calling it grad is if anything an understatement. I have always been able to find some kind of wildlife to photograph here. The waterfall's are a must see if nothing else. Note, while I say there is no fee for this, you do... More
