My husband and our two teenage children really enjoyed seeing this. I was surprised to see such a great waterfall in Yellowstone. The canyon is long, but a bend in it limits views to only part of it at a time. The cliffs and waterfall are spectacular to see.

What an incredible display of nature. Beautiful waterfall surrounded by a bright yellow canyon. Visions of the Grand Canyon in a compacted view. Like most everything in Yellowstone, this is a must see.

After studying Alfred Bierstadt in Art History, I found it hard to believe that Artist Point would be anything like his painting. What with all the park visitors crowding around, plus global warming and pine beetle damage, I figured the view couldn't be as beautiful and the trees would be gone. I am not pessimistic; I just assumed he made... More

The Grand Canyon at Yellowstone is fantastic. It's not like the North and South Rims of the Canyon but a masterpiece you can only see in Yellowstone. The mountains and waterfalls are simply beautiful and something you should not miss while your in the park. This is definitely one of the top 10 things to see in the park

Land, Waterfall and Bright Blue Sky with an wide expense of lush green land and mountains all juxtapositioning was effect. While we were there, a rainbow showed itself across the falls. A place not to be missed if you are in the area.

We made a day hike along the South Rim. Although the parking lot at the upper falls was full, the trail and viewing areas did not seem full. Great views all along the south rim trail. The hike was relatively easy, except for the spur with the long staircase. The north rim parking areas and viewing areas looked over full,... More

The waterfalls and scenery here are magnificent. In summer, be prepared to find parking scarce and people everywhere.

We've visited the Grand Canyon in Arizona several times and this sighting of Yellowstone's Grand Canyon was equally awe inspiring. The rushing waters from the water falls was a wonderful symphony highlighted by solo bird arias singing the beauty of nature. One additional surprise, a majestic bull elk was ruling his domain from a nearby copse of trees. Then there... More

Words can't describe how beautiful the falls are. Go to both the North and South sides of the falls. It is worth it.
