Very accessible to the road and parking area. The views are so amazing, and they just keep getting better. Don't miss this.

Wonderfull view from Artist Point from the Upper waterfall.There are two Artist Point views, one from the North rim and from the South rim.But it's the Soth rim view which is really impressive, surely with sunset.

There's a reason that this is one of the places that inspired the creation of our nation's national park system. In just about any direction you turn it's like you are walking inside a photograph or postcard of natural beauty. It's crowded mid-day so go early or later to avoid the bus crowds.

This was a longer walk through the trees to the small pots and steam vents. Interesting features. Lots of steps up and over but scenic.

Artist Point is an easy, paved walk that takes you to a great viewpoint of the falls and the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. It is truly beautiful and worth the effort to see this vista.

Excellent vistas and sparsely populated in September. There is a nicely paved walk that is easily accessible.

Just as Trip Advisor said, the morning rainbow was splendid, on time, and great fun to see. But more enjoyable to me than the rainbow in the falls was watching the photographers jockey for space with their tripods and their huge lenses. I'm not sure why people keep on taking pictures of something they can see 1000 times on the... More

Nice but the overall view was not as spectacular as I had anticipated from all the buildup in the guide books.

I had read the advice to visit Artist Point between 9:30 and 10:15 to see the rainbow -- great advice. We actually arrived early and had time to photograph the waterfall in the morning light. This stopping place gets lots of visitors and can seem crowded at times, but we just took our time and enjoyed talking with the other... More

I really don't want to ruin how awesome the view is by describing this location, just go see it! It is a very short drive off the main road, go all the way to the end.
