Tower Fall- Is it open?

I really want to do the hike to the base of Tower Fall, but some sites say its hasn't been open since 2004, while others like nps say it is open.I also have a Yellowstone guide I bought thru the park that says you can go there as well. I know you can go to the observation deck, but what about the base? I really hope it's open. If not, I've seen some post about taking the trail down to the river and then walking upstream to get there. If that is the only way there, how long do you have to walk down the river to get there? Any info would be much appreciated.

The base hasn't been open since 2004, that is correct. You can go down to the closure point, but no further. It was closed due to the trail being washed out and they never made a new trail because it's too dangerous. There have been some who foolishly climbed over the barrier and fortunately didn't get hurt, but that is illegal.

Well, that stinks. NPS needs to update their info. Does anyone know how long it takes to get there by walking upstream?

You don't. I can't imagine where that misinformation comes from.

If you're set on seeing a falls up close, switch to Fairy Falls. Legal, and as good as Tower Fall.

ENJOY!
