We had never heard of the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone and only knew we wanted to see Old Faithful. Even though the latter is something not to be missed, the former is something to definitely plan on seeing. We spent nearly a day here walking the Upper and Lower Falls area from both the North Rim and the South Rim... More

Always a beautiful site and worth the walk down (& back up!). Parking call be challenging. Worth sever hours and a walk to the base of the lower falls.

The canyon is a pretty site and we traveled with a guide somewhat out of the way just to see it. But please do not expect anything like the Grand Canyon.

These falls are just amazing. This are so pretty and they is a beautiful shade of green in a couple of areas, totaling unexpected. It's easy to get to, no climbing or hiking if you don't want to.

It is overwhelming how cool it is. The color of the rocks is amazing, the canyon is huge! There is a lot of bird wildlife in this area I noticed. There were a lot of people in this area, was feeling a little claustrophobic but the views made it worth it. You will find yourself waiting for a turn to... More

I can't say enough about the beauty of this area. It truly takes your breath away. There is a lot of hiking involved to see this area from many views.

Both spots are awesome and on the south rim. Artists Point offers photographers a rainbow in the morning when then sun illuminates the canyon bottom for about 15 minutes. Uncle Tom's Trail is a steep descent to a platform near the bottom of the fall. Descent and ascent are VERY steep and not suitable for small children or elderly people.

This was one of our favorite areas of entire Yellowstone trip! Awesome is the only was to describe it. We parked in the lot and walked a short walk to the view of the lower and upper falls first. Then traveled along to Artist View, which was our favorite place for photos! We didn't walk down the hike to the... More

While not as grand as the Grand Canyon, still worth a visit. The falls and rivers are beautiful. Recommend.
