Woooo! It's so cool to see the fall just beside it. I'm shocked by the beauty and sound. Fortunately I also see rainbow here. Two rainbows!

I just thought this one was ok. There are crowds and a ton of switchbacks and felt like view was just ok. I'd recommend viewing falls at higher overlook off loop.

Remarkably beautiful shirt switchback trail with active small brook on one side and large river at the bottom.

This is so amazing, to be able to somewhat stand over the brink of such a massive waterfall is such a treat. Great views of the canyon, so beautiful.

The power of this waterfall is spectacular. No photo or video could ever capture being so close to such force! If you aren’t good with hiking down so far and then back up, standing at the brink of the upper falls I thought was just as magnificent.

Short distance, just a viewpoint. But it wasn’t overly crowded and spectacular view. Awesome to get so close to the base of the fall; impressive sight!

This trail is very nice because it takes you to the top of Yellowstone’s most famous waterfall. Looking down you can truly take in the power of the falls. This path is good for all ages and is very easy. Also if you are in this part of Yellowstone I recommend you go to Artists Point for more great views of the falls.

Great view of lower falls. I thought the trek was fun but it is an incline back up

I've been down to this spot a few times and it's pretty awesome to be standing that close to this falls. There's a
lot of water going over this thing, especially in the spring and early summer. Surprised more people haven't reviewed this as it's popular.

Steep hike downhill with a great view right next to the Lower Falls. Hear and feel the roar of the falls
