Well from a Norwegian point of view this was not much of a waterfall, More like something we have all over the country.

Finding a parking spot is the hard part. Be aware of wondering pedestrians, people driving the wrong way and people making their own parking spots. Once you find a spot, let the fun begin. They have a general store with ice cream and real bathrooms. The trail to the overlook is a flat, paved half mile round trip. The view... More

Easily reached from parking lot. Pretty falls with a decent drop to it. I wouldn't say it stood out among all the amazing attractions in the park, but it is a nice, quick stop.

South of Tower is between Roosevelt Junction & Canyon Village. Trail is about one mile round trip to have a better view and it starts about 100 Mts away from the parking area. Worth a stop but not go out of the way. It has a rest room and small restaurant

This is a very beautiful waterfall just South of Tower junction. It's so popular, they built a store, bathrooms & an inadequate parking lot. Seriously, parking is a big problem & it's so congested people are parking all over. Watch out for wandering pedestrians & inattentive drivers. The hike for Tower Falls starts just past the bathrooms. It's 1 mile... More

It is fascinating to see these towers. They are so many, in different shapes, like what we saw in Turkey.

This falls is a short walk from the parking area to view - it's quite impressive and well worth the time.

This waterfall is very majestic and I love it because it was one of the reasons that convinced people that Yellowstone need to be protected. I do think Grand Canyon is more impressive and there are a lot more trails in the area. Still worth a short stop if it is on your way.

This is a pretty waterfall that is easy to view with just a short walk. Watch out for buses, they will disgorge enough tourists to fill the viewing areas, the bathrooms and the walkways. IF you see several already in the parking area you may want to come back later in the day.

Short walk from the parking lot to a spectacular Waterfall. Much different than what you would expect.
