  • The path down to the falls is slippery and steep in the winter, but don't let that stop you from going. It is beautiful; just take it slowly. Climb back up seems easier.  more »
  • It is difficult to understand. There are waterfalls there are powerful, and considerable amount of water in the very near. So far into the parking lot from Grand Teton to Yellowstone, is immediately to the right, trying to find the map and there schematic diagram, heard about this waterfall. Was not shown in the map at the gate.

  • Moose Falls is absolutely beautiful! For good pictures you'll have to make a little bit of a walk down hill! I would highly recommend the stop!  more »

  • Jumped in there many times in the early 80's. Was great fun to climb behind the falls on the very slippery rocks.
  • On a cloudy day, this is a great falls for photos!
  • The waterfall is beautiful but there are much better in the Park. In addition when we visited it was forbidden to approach because of the deterioration that had suffered there by thugs... A penalty
