  • You should visit them together with the lower falls. It's only a view steps down from the parking place to a platform. On sunny days you'll have the chance to see a rainbow where the water is falling ...  more »

  • It is the smaller of two falls with 103 ft (33m) high. Lower is much more beautiful. If you have time worth to see.
  • Great place, about 10 minut walk but worth it.
  • Good viewpoints of the upper Yellowstone Falls, relatively easy effort-wise to get there.
  • I must see in Yellowstone very very nice
  • 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.

Where to stay in Yellowstone National Park

As one of the U.S.'s most popular national parks, Yellowstone provides plenty of options for sleeping within its boundaries. Choose from lodges, inns, cabins, hotels, motels, and campgrounds throughout the park. Most of the structured accommodations lie in the park's most-visited areas, such as Mammoth Hot Springs, Tower Falls, Old Faithful Geyser, and Yellowstone Lake. Staying on the northern side of the lake puts you right in the heart of the park, making it relatively convenient to visit other areas. Resorts, lodges, and guest ranches line the road just outside the park's east entrance, and a cluster of motels and hotels fills the town of West Yellowstone near the west entrance. You can also opt for lodges and inns to the north in Gardiner, Montana, or find nearly every type of accommodation to the south in Jackson, Wyoming. Staying outside the park is fine if you plan to drive through in a day and catch the highlights, but you'll want to spend at least one night inside the park if you plan to explore it more thoroughly.
