I saw the falls on my recent trip. Parking was a bit of a problem as it appears the park is packed in September. Early in the morning it was too foggy but in the afternoon it was great. Pretty easy access too if you can find a parking spot.

The entire river falls and the grand canyon area are magnificent. The colors of the water and the surrounding hills was beautiful. It is one of the most beautiful, if not the most beautiful areas in the park. I could have stayed there for hours.

This is worth the trip. Gorgeous scenery and so peaceful. Well worth seeing. You do have to take a little walk off the pathetic to get there but worth it.

These are on the left hand side of the road as you travel north and are well worth the turn off for ten minutes to view.

This is by far the most beautiful view in the park. It snowed on Monday when we arrived so it was a treat to see the park as it is in the winter. and the falls looked even prettier with the snow. Try to stop at all the viewpoints for the broad picture

The short trail leading to the overlook for the Lower Falls at the Yellowstone Grand Canyon offers some beautiful views of the Lower falls, river and the Grand Canyon. Besides the Grand Prismatic Spring, the Lower Falls view is among the most beautiful sights in the Park. I would definitely recommend visiting the Falls.

The last time we came here it was winter, and you couldn't go all the way down. I remembered the ease of the trail. Unfortunately for me, especially with a bad foot, the entire trail is longer and steep. Don't get me wrong. For a reasonably fit person it isn't bad - though I think the woman who jogged down...

The force of the water is awe-inspiring, as are the views. The hike is manageable by any healthy person.
