Probably my favorite short trail in the park. Remarkably beautiful switchback with a lot to see.

Short low-traffic trail to the closest head-on view of stunning lower Yellowstone Falls. We appreciated having the entire trail to ourselves.

On the 2 mile one-way north rim drive we stopped at Inspiration Point, Grandview Point, Lookout Point and took the great trail down to Red Rock Point (highly recommended!) getting us closest to the lower falls on the north rim. Great viewpoint, not to miss!

Not my favorite trail to go inside the canyon(that would be Uncle Tom's on the other side), but it is not as steep, smell of pine trees the entire way down, and a great view of the falls

Great views of Lower Yellowstone Falls, most people just go to Lookout Point, if you want to get away from some of the crowd take the trail down to Red Rock Point, steep trail, but worth the time!
