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.

The views of the Grand Canyon are gorgeous! It is definitely a must visit! I visited when there were fires in Montana, but thankfully it rained the previous night so the sky was no longer hazy. It is definitely one of my favourite spots in...More

WOW, definitely worth the visit. I enjoyed seeing the Grand Canyon more than the geysers. The canyon is spectacular, love the colours and the waterfalls.

Well worth the effort to visit here. Scenery is spectacular. Be sure to get there early and miss all the big crowds.

In many ways much better than the famous geysers with the spectacular canyon cutting deep into the forest.

The downstream view of the lower falls is breathtaking. There was lots of free parking, and we'll maintained trails.

The trip to Yellowstone NP was my first. This vista was one of the definites on our trip. Gorgeous view! Parking is limited so go early and expect to wait for an open slot.

Not only are the views stunning, but they are legendary and should not be missed. The walk is easy and though it is a very popular place, relax and go with the flow and you will be able to enjoy this beautiful place

Visiting Yellowstone wouldn't be complete without checking in the Grand Canyon. As the name implies, it is big and impressive. Rightly so.

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

No, you don't need to take a tour. Almost everyone there is doing it themselves. The only ones doing a bus tour are people who don't want to or can't drive.

You don't actually park on the Grand Loop Road. You take separate drives off of it and they have their own parking areas. The drives are only 5-10 minutes south of Canyon Village. The South Rim Drive will take you to the... More
