I almost didn't stop to visit. The first day, I passed the turn. I decided to stop on day 2 of my visit and I'm glad I did. Although crowded and almost difficult to find a parking spot, the views were worth the stop. It's like a mini grand canyon and there's a waterfall. I couldn't see the rainbow that randomly appears. It was a bit too crowded for my liking and most were not wearing masks. I stayed back and took what photos I could.

This is an easy place to get to by driving north on the Grand Loop road and turning off onto the Rim Road. Drive to the end of the Rim Road. There will be a long parking lot. From there walk down the path at the end to the viewing point. It is less than 100 yards down a good slope (all paved) and then turn around. The view is of the falls and the river. Great view and easy to get to. I highly recommend this for anyone coming to the park!

Can truly understand why this is labeled Artists Point. You breath nearly stops seeing this view. When the sun hits it it’s like out of a fantasy movie. Perfect backdrop for pictures. There were alot of people the day we went but it was worth stopping.

The view from Artist Point is my favorite. The late afternoon sun ruined my photos on our first day so I returned at dawn on the following day. Artist Point is a very short walk from the parking lot. The dawn view was breathtaking. It’s not to miss. The additional benefit of the early morning drive from the Lake Hotel was the wildlife, including a grizzly bear, enroute in the Hayden Valley.

You can see why the painting of this waterfall/canyon helped create Yellowstone NP. Words really can't describe all that you can feast your eyes on here. It's just a very short walk to the viewpoint from the parking lot (which was easily reached during a September off-season visit but is probably much more crowded earlier in the summer). During our time there visitors were easily able to remain COVID-distanced and still get their photos. This is one place where you might just kick yourself for not bringing a tripod. You'll understand... A nice view of the downriver canyon area is also just a quick walk from the point and there's also a path to a lake (about a mile's hike) available from the parking lot.
