Lower Yellowstone River Falls
#3 of 109 Nature & Parks in Yellowstone National Park
Easy to reach by car or hike, the sight of these spectacular falls, the deep canyon, further enhanced to a stunning brilliance when the sun hits make these a must see.
As the Yellowstone River flows north from Yellowstone Lake, it leave the Hayden Valley and plunges first over Upper Yellowstone Falls and then a quarter-mile downstream over Lower Yellowstone Falls, at which point...

Mystic Falls Trail
#16 of 109 Nature & Parks in Yellowstone National Park
Trailhead is about 0.3 miles to the far side of the Biscuit Basin boardwalk and we enjoyed various geysers and hot springs (Black Opal Pool, Sapphire Pool, Jewel Geyser etc).
Set off from near Old Faithful towards Biscuit Basin and accidentally stumbled upon the Mystic Falls Trail and it turned out to be one of the better memories from my Tour of National Parks And Canyon Country.
Upper Falls
#17 of 109 Nature & Parks in Yellowstone National Park
You can view the falls from on of the overlooks which are adjacent to the car park for Upper Falls and Uncle Toms on the South Rim Rd. to just view them here is OK, but you can also take a short hike to the Brink...
Yellowstone Falls consist of two major waterfalls on the Yellowstone River, within Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming: Upper Falls and Lower Falls.

Tower Fall
#29 of 109 Nature & Parks in Yellowstone National Park
From Yellowstone Lake you have to brave the 8,900 ft Dunraven Pass to get to Tower Falls and since there had been recent snow, the pass had plenty of snow on top though the road was free of snow.
Tower Falls was one of our unexpected visits in Yellowstone, heading north to the Mammoth Springs, the lookout point is easily accessible (150-200m) from a parking spot next to the Grand Loop Road.
Gibbon Falls
#31 of 109 Nature & Parks in Yellowstone National Park
A beautiful gorge with great views....a really worthwhile stop for a little breath taking scenery in a place that is full of breathtaking scenery.
It is about 5 miles upstream from the confluence of Gibbon & Firehole rivers, at Madison Junction on the Grand Loop Road.
Fairy Falls
#38 of 109 Nature & Parks in Yellowstone National Park
Fairy Falls was beautiful and the mist was cooling.To get to the Imperial Geyser you need to cross the Fairy Creek via log "bridges".
The Falls is a bit longer hike but the hike to the Prismatic Spring overlook is only about 2 miles round trip (with a good ascent).

Undine Falls
#42 of 109 Nature & Parks in Yellowstone National Park
These falls are just steps away from a turnout on the road between Mammoth and Tower/ Roosevelt areas.
With so much to do in Yellowstone this beauty is overlooked, but well worth the stop.
Moose Falls
#43 of 109 Nature & Parks in Yellowstone National Park
And, the mist from the spray is particularly visible when you're there in the morning, and the sun is streaming through the surrounding woods.
It’s about a mile north of the south entrance on the right hand side (there’s a pullout) just after you cross a bridge.

The Fall River flows rapidly, and over the centuries it has cut through many rocky areas leaving some steep cliffs.Cave Falls is only 20 feet high but is the widest waterfall in Yellowstone National Park.
The hike to Cave Falls and Bechler Falls is outstanding!
