Just stop by and reach the falls with a short walk. Nice falls. We can spend some time at the shopping center near by.

We took the short walk to admire the falls and it was enough for us. If you do this walk be sure to look for the rainbow at the base of the falls; very pretty!

The falls are very beautiful and an easy hike to the observation point. There is a large store and restrooms at the site with ample parking.

Beautiful falls but especially beautiful when there is a rainbow. A good short walk to see the falls

Make sure you get views from multiple spots - the trail of the parking lot and the turnoff before the parking lot. Very pretty, not too crowded and the area we saw bears!

Another good place to see an impressive waterfall; this one impressively tall. Parking is tight here, with only two small pullouts along the counterclockwise road shoulder. We were here one afternoon in the third week in May and had no trouble parking.

Tower Falls was one of our unexpected visits in Yellowstone, heading north to the Mammoth Springs, the lookout point is easily accessible (150-200m) from a parking spot next to the Grand Loop Road. When we were there in August the water levels were rather low...More

On the east side of the upper loop, just south of the Tower-Roosevelt Entrance is a high and beautiful water fall: Tower Fall. The parking is quite congestive, small, and always crowded as we passed this attraction several times in three days. The hike down...More

Good stop to get out and stretch your legs but this is by no means an essential sight of Yellowstone.

There is a large-ish boulder at the lip, and the water pours around it. I don't know if it's the same boulder you saw, and I can't put a picture here. But there are other photos posted in September 2016 by TripAdvisor folks... More
