Well worth seeing! We saw it both at sunrise and sunset. The walk down to the falls is strenuous but worth it if you can make it. So much beauty not enough words!

Large falls on the river in grand canyon of Yellowstone. You can walk to overview at top of falls or see them from Artist Point where you can get a great photo with falls and canyon. See separate review of Artist Point.

We took the trail down to where the falls pour over...amazing. Easy walk down, tough for us older folks-it's pretty steep with 9 switchbacks. Again- GO EARLY!

Such a beautiful canyon and waterfall view from Artist Point. Guess that is why so many people visit here. But, we never get tired of it.

Wonderful. It is a very beautiful scene. Breathtaking when you first see it. To me it is just another indication that GOD is a masterful Artist. Really enjoyed. We stayed and watched for a lond time.

Depending on the season, it could be quite hot so you'll want to plan accordingly.

If you go to the TRIP REPORTS ARCHIVE in the top questions or sticky at the top of the Yellowstone forum, all the 2013 trip reports are toward the bottom of the article to give you some ideas of 3 day trips. There are 2 trails up Mt Washburn, both up Dunraven pass north of Canyon area.
