Fantastic views of the falls as well as the canyon. Get here early before the morning rush or face limited open spots for parking.

This may be the single best sight in the park. The colors and the surroundings combine so that it is spectacular and well worth the chore of getting there. Parking may be difficult as it was for us.

We hiked the trail down to the falls which was incredible but even if you do that then this view is a must-see. It is a short easy walk from the parking lot. Be sure to go here for a spectacular view of the falls...More

Ok, I should start by saying that this spot is a must see stop in Yellowstone. The lookout point is very close to the parking spot, which has a tendency to get filled quickly. However, it also opens up real quick, so if you don't...More

Only about 50 yards down a paved trail. This is a great view up the canyon/falls anyone can get to. If I had to choice one vantage point, I'd say the brink of lower falls is the most amazing...but harder to get to.

It's worth stopping to look at for sure! It's crowded and hard to find parking, but once parked, it's an easy walk for a spectacular view.

One easy walk leads you to some breath taking views of Lower Yellowstone Falls and the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. Definitely worth a stop. Minus one star because the area had horrendous parking problems and there were too few restrooms for an area this popular....More

Good distant view of Lower Falls and river below, together with the canyon walls. Very busy, not helped by Uncle Toms Point being closed to vehicles.

Quite spectacular but can be quite busy with bus groups coming and going. Great view of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone in both directions as well as the Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River. Nice colors and rock formations. Would recommend hiking to Artist...More

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

I was able to manage it on a broken foot using a cane - assuming you get a nearby park (and there was plenty of parking available when I visited but I was visiting very early in the season) there should not be an issue. If... More
