The colors are so very beautiful. When you see the amount of water going over these falls you will wonder why we ever have a water shortage. Easy for everyone to see, even with some handicaps, there are a few stairs but not many.

Absolutely beautiful. We saw it first on the Circle of Fire tour and it was very crowded but we were still able to get some great pictures. On a photo safari during rain, the small group were the only ones there. Artist's Point is incredible and not to be missed.

Short hike/long hike it's your choice. Do yourself a favour and don't drive up to the view point get out take a photo and get back in your car and drive off. You'll be missing some great views from further down the valley.

Wow! The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone was absolutely incredible - the size, the color, the sound of the rushing water. It was one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. If you're not into hiking long or challenging trails, you can still easily see the canyon. Take the drive to Artist's Point - the Lower Falls (the bigger... More

We visited on a rainy Labor Day weekend and it did not matter, the views were spectacular and the hikes great (but wet). This is a must see stop in Yellowstone.

People may disagree, but I actually enjoyed visiting THIS Grand Canyon better than THE Grand Canyon. This place is absolutely amazing! Such gorgeous views. And the trek up and down Uncle Tom's Trail was unbelievable . . . a 500 ft drop and more than 300 steps, EACH WAY. Views of the waterfalls were breathtaking.

It was pouring rain when we saw this today and so so cold but I am glad we saw it just the same! Simply stunning... Nature at its best. Be wary if you have small children though... There are spaces around the fence where a little one could possibly fall if they get away from you...

We traveled the entire loop of Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon was our favorite! Our favorite was the brink of Lower Falls but even the overlooks are amazing for those that cannot handle the challenging walk. We visited both the South and North Rim and strongly recommend both views if you have the time.
