A beautiful spot. I am handicapped and could not walk to see entire vistas. The National Park System does a beautiful job but yellowstone could do a much better job at making park accessible without taking away with its beauty. Simple handrails along paths would really help. Thank you

The stunning views from trails along the top of the canyon are spectacular any time of the year. If you are in relatively good shape, you can hike down and up the steps of Uncle Tom's Trail to look up at the Lower Falls thundering waterfall, or on the north side of the canyon, wind down and up the switchbacks...

Beautiful in the Northern section of the park as we crossed it several times looking for Otters. But it's even better in the grand canyon. We chartered a snow coach for wildlife photography and when it got slow we traveled over to the canyon. You can't miss this attraction!

We didn't have much time to visit, and winter makes exploration difficult. But what we did see was stunning and so serene. Plan ahead and around weather.

It doesn't get more beautiful than this. If you want to appreciate God's great open spaces and amazing nature - this is the place for you. It is great hiking in the summer but it may be even more fun in the winter on a snowmobile. Too much fun!!

The river in the winter is stunning any time of year, but certainly a treat to behold in the winter. Snow covers the banks of the river. Serene bliss.

this is one of the many,many "must-see" sights in this wonderful National Park; I'm sorry that I waited until my 60's to see it, for, had I been here earlier in my life, this would've been my 2nd or 3rd visit. There's so much to see here...things that cannot be seen elsewhere on the planet...and things that CAN be seen... More

I am lucky enough to live near the Yellowstone River and have always had a healthy respect for it. It's beautiful, it's pristine in so many places, and has been good to the areas it flows through.
