After Red Rock Point (highly recommended!) getting us closest to the lower falls on the north rim, the Brink of the Lower Falls trail was closed for repair, so we went on the Brink of the Upper Falls trail (the river is extremely powerful and wild diving over the upper cliffs), onto the South Rim road, taking the trails to Artist Point (beautiful palette of reds, whites and yellows in the sunlight, one of most famous views in park) and Uncle Tom’s trail to the lower falls. Great combination of stops.

Completed this hike during Canyon North Rim trail. So very beautiful. Very worth the time to see this spectacle.

Great view of Yellowstone Falls.

Fight off the day trippers, dodge the selfie sticks, marvel at the use of poles on pavement, and see this overlook. All of the wading through the crowds is worth it. You will regret coming to Yellowstone and not stopping here.

Make sure to go early to avoid the crowds and buses
