“Spectacular”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

This canyon is one of the highlights of a visit to Yellowstone. Old Faithful geyser is the center of attention, but don't miss the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. It is absolutely gorgeous. The canyon and the falls are worth the short walk to see the view.

“Is this spectacular or what?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

Did not expect such a spectacular vista and sheer yellow rock walls plummeting to the river below. Lots of lookout points to drive to and see both upper and lower falls as well as the canyon. You don't have to walk all the way to the bottom, driving is just a nice to get to the lookout points. It is truely grand and not to be missed while in Yellowstone.

“Beautiful Waterfall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

One of the best waterfalls I have ever seen. Easy to hike down for a close up view. Great vantage points for awesome photos. We went in the morning to avoid late afternoon crowd. I recommend going before 10 am, parking lots tend to fill up in the afternoon. A definite must see when visiting Yellowstone! You will not be disappointed at all.

“A must see”

Absolutely beautiful. No word can describe. Must take a picture and take the hike down. Not hard if you have the right shoes and energy.

“Beautiful Rainbow at the Falls”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

We started our morning here. There was a beautiful rainbow at the falls. On the North Rim Drive, we saw the tops of the Lower Falls, Look out point and inspiration point. There were a couple of osprey nests on the rocks in the canyon. We saw the brink of the upper falls and then continued to the South Rim Drive, saw the upper falls viewpoint, artist point and walked down the paved incline and 300 steps of Uncle Tom's Point. It you are able to make the steps up and back it is worth seeing Uncle Tom's Point. It was very pretty.
