Date of visit: 7-1-15. Visit in the morning and park in the lot nearest the bridge. The rim trail has a few ups and downs, but terrific vistas and you're always in the shade. Bring water and a snack if you're taking it slow. Challenge yourself with the Uncle Tom trail only if you're fit. 500 stairs at altitude are... More

This was one of most amazing sites I've ever seen! We went on a first-time trip to Yellowstone as a family of 4 and a grandmother and it was so amazing! We have never been to the Grand Canyon in Arizona and now that we've been here I don't feel the need. It was amazing!

Well worth a visit, even if you can only spend five minutes or less. This is an attraction which truly lives up to its name. It is undoubtedly a canyon, and it is very grand. Furthermore, as two minutes on Google will confirm, the river which runs through it is indeed the Yellowstone. We (myself, Mrs. Rat, and the Ratling)... More

You can see why it is called this and it is quite impressive, but will need a few million years to become a grand canyon. Still took lots of great pictures

Hike from Upper Falls to Artists Point was well marked & beautiful along the river. It's not a loop, so you have to walk back to your car.

I guess it was okay if you have never seen a water fall before. I was told by everyone in the Old Faithful Hotel, what a great place to see.

I thought this was the highlight of the park! I've never seen anything more beautiful! You have vantage points all around this wonder and can see it from all angles, and every time it gives you a different look and perspective.

The Grand Canyon area of Yellowstone has some of the most spectacular scenery that I have ever seen. The falls are absolutely gorgeous. You can hike down to the upper falls and lower falls via stairs, paths, etc...Wear good hiking shoes and thick socks. Follow the road to all of the stopping areas and make the hile. It is well...

You can see the lower and upper falls from both sides of the canyon and from the top looking down. You can walk to the river and eyeball the lower falls on the level. You get to see Ospreys nesting and feeding their young. To go Yellowstone and not visit the Grand Canyon is like going to Venice and not... More

We spent several hours in the Canyon area on our recent trip to Yellowstone. We enjoyed hikes to the bottom of the "Brink of the Lower Falls" and "Uncle Tom's Trail". Both were a bit on the strenuous side, but were incredibly enjoyable and gave incredible views of the Lower Falls from just above and a hundred feet or so... More
