It is a fairly easy walk to see the fall - if you stand in the corner and look towards it. There is also a path beyond this area that takes you down to the water. Some beautiful views here, but you can't see the...More

Tower Fall in Yellowstone National Park isn't to be compared to the great waterfalls of the world, like Niagara Falls or Yosemite Falls or Angel Falls or Victoria Falls, but it isn't to be dismissed. In the grand scheme of things, it isn't one of...More

Tower Falls is a good place to stop along the east side drive. The walk to the falls is short and fairly level. The interesting feature is the stone towers beside the falls. It is definitely worth short stop.

Was very disappointed to find that you can no longer get to the bottom of the falls. You used to be able to take the trail all the way to the very bottom of the falls which is where you get the full impact of...More

These are very nice falls, though they may not measure up to others in the park. Still worth a visit. Easily accessible, via a very short walk from the parking area. There is a small general store here, which was closed when we visited in...More

There is nothing in yellowstone that disappointed me. In the fall the colors are glorious and add water you have a great picture.

After a brief walk to the viewing area, you see it. The surrounding rocky cliff makes it more interesting to see.

Unless you are spending several days in Yellowstone this is one sight you can skip. It is nice enough but nothing special. Focus on the numerous sights in Yellowstone which are special.

The waterfall itself is nice but not comparable to the majestic Lower and Upper Falls in Yellowstone. The surrounding area though is very nice to look around and to take pictures.

Tower Fall is so named because there is only a single drop from the hanging valley above into the chasm below. The trail beyond the viewpoint does not offer any further views of the fall.

I agree with above. Tower Falls is viewed from afar at a nice well designed walk to view. We are also in our 60s and did a lot of hiking on our own without the bear spray however it was July NOT September. The trails are... More

There is a large-ish boulder at the lip, and the water pours around it. I don't know if it's the same boulder you saw, and I can't put a picture here. But there are other photos posted in September 2016 by TripAdvisor folks... More
