Tower Falls was one of our unexpected visits in Yellowstone, heading north to the Mammoth Springs, the lookout point is easily accessible (150-200m) from a parking spot next to the Grand Loop Road. When we were there in August the water levels were rather low...More

On the east side of the upper loop, just south of the Tower-Roosevelt Entrance is a high and beautiful water fall: Tower Fall. The parking is quite congestive, small, and always crowded as we passed this attraction several times in three days. The hike down...More

Good stop to get out and stretch your legs but this is by no means an essential sight of Yellowstone.

Tower Fall is 132 ft/40 m tall. While it's beautiful it's not as spectacular as the Upper and Lower Falls in the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. The parking area is along the Grand Loop Road between Canyon Village and Tower Junction, and there is...More

Tower Fall is most certainly on the Top 10 List of things to see while visiting Yellowstone National Park. It's an easy walk, not much time...what's not to like about taking some photos of this beautiful waterfall ?!?!? Probably 2nd only to the Lower Falls...Takes...More

This was beautiful. There were several bus loads of Chinese tourists there, and it made it hard to take a picture without one of them in it they weren't overly considerate.

Just a little walk to see it and worth it. You do not need to be in shape for the walk. Good photo op.

The falls are a short walk from the parking area. The parking area can fill quickly, so plan to arrive early or later in the day. The trail is paved and easy to navigate. There are pinnacles surrounding the falls. A large general store contains...More

We stopped for two reasons, the waterfall and the amenities. The amenities were good and after a short walk, the view of the waterfall was not too bad either. There were additional walks to the bottom of the falls but we didn't take them.

There's a nice trail to hike out to the waterfall, and some neat, conical rock pinnacles. Perhaps not as stunning as some of the other sites in Yellowstone, but still worth seeing. Plus, there's a general store nearby to stop for a snack.

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
