“Nice Stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

Nice stop on the way to Lamar Valley. Short walk from the parking area. The trail to the falls was closed, but still a nice place to get out and click some photos. There is a general store in this area and also restrooms.

“Nice little stroll.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

All paved short trail up to the viewing point. Gaining a bit of height, but nothing strenuous.
Toilets, at the parking lot, were clean and the souvenir shop had the usual odds and ends. Have to be careful though. Not all the shops in Yellowstone have the same things. So if you find something, be sure to pick it up. Or you might have to go back.

“A short walk to an exceptional view.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

It is only a short walk from the car park to the viewing platform for Tower Falls, and well worth the stop. The walk to the bottom of the falls was closed for repairs when we were there, but that just gave us time to explore the "General Store". :-)

“Quick Stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

Tower Falls is another of the great waterfalls in Yellowstone National Park. But if like us, you're coming off a long day of hiking, you can decide to just take the short walk along a paved trail to the overlook of Tower Falls. It's worth it. The sculpted rocks that rise above the lip of the falls are a feature you won't find at any other waterfall here. If you want a longer walk to the falls, make sure you check with a ranger first because sometimes the trail is closed do to washouts.

“Need to see!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

Tower Falls are impressive. The big disappointment we had was you can no longer hike to the base of the falls. The trail collapsed and has not been repaired. This is too bad, because the falls from the base is a powerful experience.

You can hike a short distance and get to the principal viewpoint. You can continue hiking down the trail to the Yellowstone River and frolic in the water. The trail down is rather steep, but is a nice diversion.
