  • Visited the falls multiple times- afternoon and evening. The sun casts different shadows as the day goes on so I recommend multiple visits to truly capture the beauty and grandeur of the falls.  more »
  • The bus after a short walk of about 156 minutes you arrive at the small waterfall, we're lucky it had just rained and we saw each other in front of a beautiful Rainbow.

  • This is a gorgeous geologic feature. The Yellowstone River begins it's decent into the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. Be sure to see the Lower Falls which are 3 times as high.  more »

  • This is truly a wonderful place to visit! If you are in Yellowstone you must visit the Upper Falls. There is a great viewing point (5 min walk) where you can see the falls in full glory. There is a big parkin lot with restrooms available.
  • Great hike to the upper falls with good views and great for pictures. If you are from lower elevations, allow for some time to acclimate to the thinner air.
  • Do not go to Yellowstone without seeing the Upper Falls! You can see falls from two rims. North rim you walk to a cutout 5 feet above a raging, thundering torrent of ice cold river shoving itself thru a narrow gap. South rim you get the big picture of the water flinging itself into the air and cascading down to the depths of the canyon. Don't miss it!
  • Beautiful scenery and very accessible for my soon to be 91 year old father.
  • Really enjoyed this spot, a couple of minutes walk away from the highway. Really thrilling place, and a cool refreshing View
