Owner description: A spectacular waterfall located in Canyon Country.
Reviewed 17 November 2017

You can see the falls from several places along the north or south rim drives. The best place to experience the falls is from the brink. There is a large parking area, but plan to arrive early or later in the day, as the lot can be full during most of the day. There is a steep walk from the parking lot to the brink, about a 600 ft drop. The trail is paved and easy to navigate. Coming back up, you may have to stop a few times to catch your breath. At the brink, you can see and hear the power of the river as it rushes over. If you are able, I definitely recommend this stop.

This place is stunning. Artist Point involves a short walk through a beautiful canyon, but as soon as you turn a corner and get your first glimpse of the falls and the river, it will take your breath away.

Great views from the road stops, but hard to understand the scale from so far away. Still it is one of the must do items when visiting Yellowstone National Park.

the falls are beautiful, we only wish that we were able to get up closer to them or maybe have a view from the top

Take pictures of this falls from Artist's Point. The whole area is
beautiful. Parking is a little difficult as it is a popular place, but with persistence, it doesn't take long to find a spot.
