Will strongly recommend to drive through South Rim Drive to have the best location to take pictures of the waterfalls. When taking the south rim drive you will have access to two top viewpoints, one is Uncle Tom's trail (that is currently closed) and the...More

Saw this on Trip advisor and probably wouldn't have stopped unless it had been recommend. Most signs in Yelllowstone are non-descriptive. So very glad we stopped to see a wide variety of geological happenings. .

Artist Point will take your breath away! Do NOT miss stopping here. It was hard for us to tear ourselves away from the view.

There are lot of cars and people. The lookout to the valley is beautiful and colorful. You can see a lower falls too.

This is a trip highlight and a must stop if visiting the park. Always lots of people but the view is worth the effort.

That is difficult to answer/predict. The only reliable method is to watch the YNP website, under "alerts." Road closure and openings are usually announced.

Yes it is open, the construction is at Tom's Trail parking area. You will pass it on the way to Artists Point. The parking is limited, September will be easier....but I would still try to get there early. It has one of the... More
