We went later in the day and it was not too busy. You don't see the rainbow then but it is still the most amazing view. DO NOT miss this out!!

Get there early because this place fills up fast, like most areas of the park. Nice view of the lower falls.

In the summer this place will be a very crowded spot but it is a short hike and well worth the view!

When we arrived at the park around 9:30am. The place is amazing and beautiful. It’s bit of walk but it’s worth walking key points in park. These are natural wonders of world. Truly beautiful.

Popular stop, but just gorgeous landscape. I recommend you get out of the car and walk around and take pictures.

The view from this point is stunning, but because it’s such an easy walk from the parking lot, it gets very busy. Be sure to come as early as possible!

Do not miss this under any circumstance. If anything this tops things the park is more famous for. View of the falls is just breathtaking.

The trail to this viewing area is an easy walk (technically called a hike but most of it is paved). The view is stunning and one that you see on many postcards and photos published of the park. It does not disappoint! The parking is...More

That is difficult to answer/predict. The only reliable method is to watch the YNP website, under "alerts." Road closure and openings are usually announced.
