Our group snowmobiled to this site on recent February visit into the Park. Have been here on several occasions and is always an awesome vista. Well worth the trip to see the river and falls! Judy

took the hike down knowing coming up would be a chore, but when we got to the lookout it was amazing so much water going over the edge it was somewhat frightening because of the roar and the crowds trying to look over the edge.

First, any visit to any part of Yellowstone National Park is amazing, and the two major falls are iconic. But, the Yellowstone River and falls are not even close to West Yellowstone, MT as indicated on this listing today - they on the opposite side...More

Our family drove from La Jolla, Ca to Yellowstone Park and back. Definitely a long drive, but well worth it, in my opinion. Yellowstone does have a lot of traffic and it's not always easy to find parking, but is one of the unique places...More

Truly gorgeous with more than one viewing point. If you can handle the climb, truly worth seeing from all the different points. If you can't handle climbing than there are some great viewing areas off the parking areas of this beauty without the climbing.

We drove along this for miles... then visited in the Canyon on both sides. Simply gorgeous. Fall is the best time, for color of course but also less traffic.
