This is a very beautiful waterfall just South of Tower junction. It's so popular, they built a store, bathrooms & an inadequate parking lot. Seriously, parking is a big problem & it's so congested people are parking all over. Watch out for wandering pedestrians & inattentive drivers. The hike for Tower Falls starts just past the bathrooms. It's 1 mile... More

It is fascinating to see these towers. They are so many, in different shapes, like what we saw in Turkey.

This falls is a short walk from the parking area to view - it's quite impressive and well worth the time.

This waterfall is very majestic and I love it because it was one of the reasons that convinced people that Yellowstone need to be protected. I do think Grand Canyon is more impressive and there are a lot more trails in the area. Still worth a short stop if it is on your way.

This is a pretty waterfall that is easy to view with just a short walk. Watch out for buses, they will disgorge enough tourists to fill the viewing areas, the bathrooms and the walkways. IF you see several already in the parking area you may want to come back later in the day.

Short walk from the parking lot to a spectacular Waterfall. Much different than what you would expect.

If you are lucky enough to get a parking space these falls are a short walk to see. Since it is a short walk people don't stay here long, but it is worth seeing. Not as impressive as the falls at the Grand Canyon of the North but if you are looking for a fall that is easy to get... More

Where every water falls over rocks is a great spot to stop and take in the view. This has a decent car park and a small shop to grab something to eat, ice cream or a quick souvenir. Rest rooms are adjacent to the path to the Falls overlook. It is only a short walk up to the overlook, where... More

Easy access to this beautiful waterfall. Lots of parking and a short easy walk. Rest rooms are available. This is a unique view of a narrow fall with great geology. Bring your camera.

Tower Falls was pretty, but surpassed by several other falls in my opinion. If you are traveling between Lamar Valley and Canyon village, it is certainly worth a stop, but I wouldn't drive out of my way.
