Take note this is should see. I was with a tour and just loved it. A great tour manager makes a big difference. There are many areas to see around the falls that the tour shows you. The bathrooms sre terrible at the Falls.

This is certainly one of the most beautiful places in the whole Yellowstone Park, a place that is already full of breathtaking and unbelievable scenery. It's a tough hike, but definitely do Uncle Tom's Trail to the Lower Falls - it's simply amazing. In any...More

It is not the real Grand Canyon, however, it is great in its own way, impressive and unique, like each and any other wonder of the park.

I can't even begin to describe how wonderful the views are! The paths are well maintained and there are the occasional restroom facilities. We visited in October so it wasn't very busy. We packed a lunch and enjoyed it at a lovely little viewing station....More

The cayon is very pretty with different colors. We went on both rainy and sunny days, both were good. On the rainy day, the temperature dropped so much that we had to buy jackets from the shop near by.

Beautiful to see. If you are relatively fit, take the walk down to the waterfalls. It is spectacular. Walking back could be taxing, but it is worth it.

The canyon is nothing like the Grant Canyon on the Colorado.but is very interesting. There are some very colorful spots.

The Grand Canyon of Yellowstone has striking geography. You would not expect to see this in Yellowstone. The diversity of geography in Yellowstone is amazing.

I believe there's only 2 places open in the park in the winter: Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel and Old Faithful Snow Lodge.

We did it in one day. The road around Mammoth Springs was closed then and we did wee everything else. Leave Jackson early and take a good full day with occasional stops. The Grand Canyon of Yellowstone is not to be missed... More

You do not! We toured the area by ourselves, by car and you have great detailed maps given by the park. It is very beautiful and so much to see!
