An easy hike for a nice view of the fall. The fall itself is nice too but not that amazing compared to Lower Yellowstone Fall. Not a bad spot to stop to stretch the legs or use the rest facilities. There a handy country store...More

Just a short hike to view this beauty. It's hidden from the road so you need to get out and walk down to see.

Just a short hike down path to get a distant but great view of Tower Falls. There may be a way to get closer but we did not have the time this trip. Next time!!

I wasn't sure about stopping here because I read that it was unimpressive, I strongly disagree. It was gorgeous and had a winding hiking trail taking you by the Yellowstone River. I recommend a stop here.

I was all alone to admire this gorgeous fall and it's just next to the other. Look out for the pull off

Tower Falls is at a separate stop with a parking lot, shop, bathroom, lunch place, and even a paved trail to get there. It is only about a 3 minute walk to the falls. As a result, the parking lot was very crowded. Found it...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
