This is a MUST STOP area of the park. I think all the pictures speak for themselves, but it's way more impressive in person. There were several places to stop and see the canyon and waterfalls. I wish we would have planned more time in this area.

This canyon and waterfall were one of the highlights in our Yellowstone Trip. It was beyond beautiful. A short walk on a paved trail takes you to an area where you can see the waterfall, yellow rock canyon walls, and river below. Then there's another short drive to an upper viewing area to see it from a different angle. It... More

Probably the highlight of the whole park. The colours of the rock are amazing and the waterfalls spectacular.

It's difficult to explain how incredible this land mass is; I think I must have taken 1000 pictures from every angle and location.

While not as large as the grand canyon, the colors are beautiful and the hiking opportunities are accessible, even for kids. Hiking boots and stern warnings to stay on the trail are a must,

Holy Cow! I didn't expect to be so taken with this scenery. Our party of 4 adults, one teenager and two small children hiked about 5.5 miles, with the last third of the hike along the canyon rim. Absolutely breathtaking! The canyon and falls are very dramatic!

I went to Yellowstone for the first time in 2014. The weather was perfect and the sites were breathtaking. There were so many picturesque and inspiring views. We were there with a group with family members aged 4-67. The hikes and walks in the area were great for all of us. Even with little ones had no problems going down... More

Yellowstone is an amazing, but very BUSY park. As a person who enjoys the solitude nature has to offer, I was a little disappointed with this. Every part of Yellowstone is beautiful, and the wildlife is amazing. The grand canyon was HUGE and definitely worth seeing!

Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone is located on south-east of Yellowstone National Park. When you drive through this area, the geologic features are not same as west or north part of Yellowstone. I went on late October 2014, the snow just started few days ago before I arrived. Many walking trails were closed. So I recommend to visit on summer... More
