These falls aren't very spectacular. They are off the grand loop rd. It is a good bathroom break and has a parking lot.

Nice, pretty photo opportunity with parking available next to it. Not in the ‘must see’ category but nice. If you’re in Yellowstone for a few days then no doubt you will end up driving past Gibbon Falls and so a quick stop off is worthwhile.

Beautiful spot to visit and see the waterfall running. Great signage and information about the area. Lovely to visit, even in the sign

Gibbon Falls is more of a cascade than a waterfall. Short walk from parking lot on a paved surface. Only thing missing is a "LONGDROP", toilet. Falls are worth the stop.

So beautiful and an easy walk to get all the good views of the falls. Plenty of parking also. You get to see it from all different angles.

Gibbon Falls is pretty, but is suffers by comparison. Consider all that surrounds it and you can see why I would not put it in the sights you have to see if you just have a couple of days.

While not one of the park's premier attractions, this is one of several "lesser" waterfalls. The short path from the parking lot leads to several vantage points, all with good views.

Yet another beautiful spot along the adventure that is Yellowstone. Not a jaw-dropper by any means, but still worth stretching your legs to admire yet another fantastic view.

This was our first stop in Yellowstone. It was pretty. It's a quick stop, so if you have the time, it's a nice addition to the itinerary.

Perhaps not worth a special trip to see but well worth stopping by if you are on this road. The views from part way down the walkway are good enough if you cannot walk all the way.
