“One of natures finest.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

Take your time to walk the rim and experience the sounds, smells and views around you. The colours in the rock faces caused by Hot spring activity are wonderful and the lower Falls are a sight to behold. If you stay at Canyon lodge and cabins there is a wooded path to Grandview point just 15mins or so away, from there we walked the north rim. We spent 5 hours in total and it was worth every moment, even in the rain ! Plan to spend at least 2 or 3 hours to enjoy it. You can drive along the rim and stop at various viewpoints if hiking is not your thing.

“A must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

This was my favorite attraction in Yellowstone. Hiked down to the brink of Lower Falls. Gorgeous!!! Must see from Artists Point on the South Rim. More impressive than Old Faithful.

“It is a must see!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Take all the short hikes in the area. Avoid the months of June - August if you hate crowds. It is even more amazing if you snowmobile in and see it in the winter.

“Colorful Sight”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Worth the short hike on a paved path. Snow had not melted yet, so made it even more picturesque. Trees have grown up, so there are only a few points that afford a great view.

“Majestic and colorful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Easy walk along paved paths to viewing areas unless you want to take the steps to the base of the falls. Beautiful canyon even though it is far less spectacular than the Grand Canyon. A must see in Y-stone, particularly as a nice break from geysers.
