I hiked down to the brink of the lower falls and it was amazing!!! I felt so close to the rushing water and the volume going past was impressive. I’m sure it’s nice from an overlook, but if you want the full effect, take the trail down. The trail is EXTREMELY steep so it’s switchback after switchback after switchback. I wouldn’t recommend doing it unless you’re physically in decent shape. I continued on the North Rim trail and hiked up past Crystal Falls and on to the Upper Falls. I didn’t encounter one single person and the views were spectacular, but when I got to the overlooks, they were packed

Lower falls have a great photo opportunity. Lot of winter snow melt. Parking is a little slow depending on when you get there.
Go early.

The Lower Falls is maybe the more spectacular of the two Falls at Yellowstone. It is at the head of the amazing Yellowstone River Canyon. An interesting thing is the line of green water to the left hand side. Apparently there is a notch that makes the water deeper here so not "aerated" and thus green for a short ways over the Falls.

Yellowstone is filled with many awesome falls and sites to see. Just because you've seen one waterfall doesn't mean you've seen them all.

There are multiple places to see these falls, and I encourage everyone to do so. The falls change drastically as you continue along to upper falls. These falls are quite large and impressive with the volume of water rushing down them!

We were here late October when the park was mostly closed for the summer months. There is both a north and south rim roads which give you different viewpoints. You could easily spend a day driving to both sides of the Yellowstone Grand Canyon and hiking down to the viewpoints of both the Lower Falls and the Upper Falls. Great place to explore.

We took in both the north and south rim roads to get the full effect of the Yellowstone Canyon and the falls. Hiked out to get vantage points. Well worth the time.

The hike was a little tougher than I expected. But so worth the view. If you see a big crowd coming I suggest waiting at a turn for them to pass. It got congested and some people didn’t have common courtesy to walk single file when passing other people and there are no railings. It was pretty scary since the trail is narrow.

Spectacular sites, totally worth the short hike.The drive is also worth seeing this waterfall. It was raining and so the trail was not crowded but if it was it would be a close encounter with other people
