Unless you are spending several days in Yellowstone this is one sight you can skip. It is nice enough but nothing special. Focus on the numerous sights in Yellowstone which are special.

The waterfall itself is nice but not comparable to the majestic Lower and Upper Falls in Yellowstone. The surrounding area though is very nice to look around and to take pictures.

Tower Fall is so named because there is only a single drop from the hanging valley above into the chasm below. The trail beyond the viewpoint does not offer any further views of the fall.

This waterfall is supposed to be over 100 feet tall, but the bottom of the fall is hidden from view by vegetation from the viewing area. But no matter, it is still very scenic and it is conveniently located next to the Grand Loop Road...More

One of the easy short side-trips you can take along the main drive. A short paved walk to an overlook with a very nice view of the falls. You can stop at the General Store for refreshment afterwards. An easy, relatively level grade that most...More

Stopped here for a quick view which can be a little tricky with all the trees. We also love the pull out just north of here that doesn't show the falls but still and amazing view of the valley and different geology.

150yard walk from the parking lot takes you to a lookout where you can see the falls. They are one of the more impressive falls in the park and worth a stop. There is a general store next to the parking lot where you can...More

The falls are quite high or deep with beautiful scenery along the way. And you can see part of the Canyon walls along the way

My husband and I spent a few days in Yellowstone. This was an Easy Stop to enjoy the beautiful Falls. Short walk to see & hear the water cascading over.

These falls are in the North Eastern part of the park. There is a large parking lot and a short walk to the falls. The falls are very nice. We saw a mother bear with 3 young very near this place : fabulous !

I agree with above. Tower Falls is viewed from afar at a nice well designed walk to view. We are also in our 60s and did a lot of hiking on our own without the bear spray however it was July NOT September. The trails are... More

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
