This was such a nice surprise, as we had no idea that we should go until some other tourists mentioned it to us. It is not very hard to walk to and is a very good place for photos. You can see the beautiful colors in the rocks and get a great view of the Lower Falls of the Yellowstone.... More

It is a nice point where you can see artists at work inspired by the nature and enjoy a wonderful and wide view of the Upper Falls of Yellowstone and the canyon without doing difficult trails (it is a really little walk from the car parking). Definitely a place to see in Yellowstone Park.

So this was beautiful, along with the Prismatic spring along with the other colorful springs we saw. It gets crowded by mid morning at the different springs, so plan to get an early start, parking is limited at all the sites so be prepared. Would definitely visit again.

One of our favorite hikes while we were there. Lovely viewpoints. Accessible to all. Very pretty particularly late afternoon.

Definitely a must see. There's not much else to say about it. You will not be disappointed! Bring your best camera and time it with sunrise or sunset.

There are many viewpoints on each side of the canyon/falls that have beautiful views but this point is the best viewpoint around and can also view downstream from same point which is equally beautiful. Many fotos and paintings originate here

I'd not known much about the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone before I visited the first time, but was awestruck, particularly with the yellow rock formations and spires and the view of the falls in the back. I returned a year later and stayed even longer, I was so mesmerized. I was there during shoulder season, so the crowds were not... More

We loved catching this in the morning fog and then again after hiking uncle toms trail once it had burned away. Worth the return trip for sure.

THis is another hike down, rather a very long staircase, Kind of scary but you can see most of the view from the top and save the walk back up. Best on a day that creates the rainbow in the mist - go early on a sunny day to see it best

As you walk to Artist's Point you see the yellow rock formations of the Yellowstone River. The height and colors of the stony peaks are impressive. You also can look back up the river and see the falls you were standing over on a previous stop.
