This place is worth visiting again and again. I was stunned by the Canyon and waterfall. It's so beautiful and powerful. It was not easy to find a parking spot and very crowded though. It's my favor spot of Yellowstone National Park. Really love it.

My wife is handicapped and this is not an accessible attraction. Very disappointing. More effort should be made to make this attraction accessible.

Great view of the falls. There are a number of hikes to get real close. Or, if you can't hike there are good overlook areas.

Gorgeous view of the falls from Artist point. The traffic in the parking lot is crazy and we were there in "off" season. So go early.

Rate the overall Canyon area Excellent 5 stars. The waterfalls are beautiful and well worth the time and effort. Even, just viewing from the rim is great. If you have the time and can do the walk, the trail into the canyon is spectacular.

Get to the parking lots early if you want to avoid having to wait for a spot to open up. Before 9am is best.
