Lower Falls- Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone RIver, North Rim

Canyon Village, Yellowstone River, Yellowstone National Park, WY

happyly approved

Yellowstone's most famous waterfall!

Thanks to a great tip from a friend, we found our way on our final Yellowstone trip of the season to the incredible Yellowstone Grand Canyon via the Lower Falls, North Rim, a lookout point where you can view the canyon and waterfall at the same time (Beautiful).  The Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River is the largest and most famous in the Park at 308 feet tall!  

We chose to embark on the Red Rock Point Hike (1/2 mile out and back). The hike to the Red Rock Point viewing area is a zig-zag downhill, mostly paved (but bumpy) and then a long set of boardwalk like stairs down to a grand viewing spot where you see the powerful waterfall flowing.  It’s perfect for kids and the environment around you is incredible.
