Don't go out of your way to come see this but as it was along out loop drive, we stopped to check it out. The family spent more time playing with the squirrel than view the falls. It is just a few steps from the...More

This is about a 45 minute drive on a narrow, winding road from Canyon Village, but Wow!! It is worth the time. The "towers" formed from the waterfall erosion are spectacular. All concessions are closed after Labor Day, and that includes restrooms, so be prepared,...More

This stop is good for a chance to stretch your legs and/or eat lunch, which we did. It's a very short walk to the view of the falls. The falls themselves are not too exciting but it was a good break in driving from Mammoth...More

From Yellowstone Lake you have to brave the 8,900 ft Dunraven Pass to get to Tower Falls and since there had been recent snow, the pass had plenty of snow on top though the road was free of snow. It is a beautiful drive with...More

This is a worthwhile stop and you can enjoy another waterfall in Yellowstone. It may not be as spectacular as Upper and Lower Falls on the Yellowstone River. There are restrooms here too. The short hike/walk is worth the view....you can easily see where the...More

Another worthwhile stop! It's a short walk to the viewing area at the top of the falls. There's also a gift shop (closed for the day when we arrived) with restrooms.

A large parking lot and a short, paved walking path takes you to the view of Tower Fall. Larger than Wraith and Undine Falls and possibly a more picturesque setting. Easy access means lots of people though. Take the time to find a parking space...More

Even though not very spectacular the fall is good for a stop, there is a nice stroll to the fall and there is a store where you can buy something to eat and drink.

Very close to the road. Worth a stop. Don't drive by. It will only take a few minutes. There is a trail all the way down to the river if you're in excellent physical shape

This fall is ok. I mean it would be very cool and pretty somewhere else but it gets overshadowed by other attractions in Yellowstone. Still stop by on your way to/from Lamar Valley if not only just to use the washroom and get ice cream...More

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
