Great view of the prettiest waterfall in the park. Optional time to take pics early morning or late evening to add to the ambience. Beautiful scenery and gorgeous views. Get pic with falls in the back and you won't be sorry!

Words cannot describe the beauty of nature. There was still snow on the trees and ground, but roads were clear. Very scenic and beautiful.

This is one of the largest waterfalls I have seen, flowing with full force with the melting of the snow in Yellowstone. Most of the trail still had snow so couldn't get down to some of the viewpoints.

Beautiful falls with multiple viewing sites. Easy access early in the season but could imagine slow travel in the summer months.

We saw the falls as a part of our visit to the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. We visited after a light snow fall and the contrast between the multi-hued yellow and brown walls, the soft white of the snow and the power of the stumbling falls makes for a great experience

If you are in Yellowstone, you have to see the falls and the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone! I have seen it in summer and half frozen in Winter and it is spectacular either way

The power of nature in all her beauty. Gorgeous waterfall and great to walk along the path to various view points. Very busy spot but plenty of spaces to view the falls. There were a few bird watchers there too as there were some nesting eagles at the time of our visit. The stairway down the side of the valley... More

Hiking along the rim of the canyon was one of the most beautiful experiences of my life. Highly recommended.
