This waterfall is beautiful. Highly recommend taking uncle Tom's trail to view it. Totally worth the effort. This is just gorgeous and the most wonderful thing in the park.

Like the canyon, this is an amazing and beautiful view, but likewise viewing it was like going to a black Friday sale at a discount store. Pure chaos.

Twice the height of Niagara Falls, this is probably the most photographed Falls in the Park. It is beautiful and even from a distance you can see the mist rising up from the water as it falls to the bottom and moves along the river below.

We took trail to get a close view of the lower falls. The view is amazing. It can get little crowded in the platform and the climb up is tiring but definitely worth it.

Just absolutely beautiful - the cuts and ruggedness of the falls are breathtaking. It would be great to see when its snowing.

Simply amazing, breathtakingly beautiful!! So worth the small climb to it. The river leading up to it seems calm, it's hard to wrap your brain around the powerfulness of the falls.

Great views of the lower falls, especially if you take the trail to the lower platform. Well worth it and great exercise. Nice rock formations to see on the way down. Easy walking down the trip back is a total work out.
