I loved this area of The Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. The falls are gorgeous and the vantage point from here is breathtaking! Well worth hiking down to the brink of the lower falls as well.

Worth the hike!
Sep 2021
WOW! This is a short (1/2 mile) walk down from the parking area to the viewing area of the falls, but it is extremely steep and has many switchbacks. I was amazed at how many people we saw wearing inappropriate footwear, like platform flip-flops. Be sure to wear comfy hiking shoes or sneakers!! And be aware that the steep climb down means you'll have a steep climb back up. There are plenty of places to stop and rest if you need to, but it is a climb.

Nevertheless, this is certainly worth the effort! The views are spectacular all along the trail, and especially at the end. Highly, highly recommended. (We did the upper falls hike immediately afterward - it's much less steep and equally impressive. You can also drive to it.)

Plenty of vista points to get the full beauty of the lower Yellowstone River basin. The intensity of the water flow is powerful.

A trek to get close
Aug 2021
In order to get right next to the falls, you must take a half-mile walk with a dozen switchbacks to arrive. Going down is OK but the walk up is a chore. Well worth the effort though.

Amazing Waterfall
Jul 2021
Huge waterfall, amazing views of the canyon. You can see the falls from a few different spots, both at a distance and up close. If you want the close up view, be ready for a tough hike back up from the falls.

The trail to the lower falls is a little steep , a lot of switchbacks. But so worth it!! Once you get down, you come out on top of the falls & can see down the valley! It’s beautiful!!

I think it is worth the effort. Plenty of resting spots for the climb up. If you are in decent shape, go for it.

The hike to get to the falls is not so easy, but it worth efforts. Falls are not big, but beautiful.

Go to the Lower Falls and take the walk to the loop area where you can look out. Get your camera ready and take breath taking pictures of these mammoth falls.
