A good place to see the lower fall and the canyon. The canyon is so beautiful, colorful, and different from any other canyons I have ever seen.

The hike down was such a delight! A stream cascades down the canyon, and it was so refreshing to be greeted by the sound of water at the various turns of the switchback. It’s very peaceful, especially with the limited people on this trail. It was the first stop I felt we could “enjoy the view” rather than feel we needed to take our photo and move on!

Work on the way back up, but a bonus to be away from crowds.

Great short hike to get a better view of the lower falls. Climbing back up was a bit hard, but it was a good workout.

Great short hike. Views of lower falls from this point were awesome. Trail is paved on way down and can be narrow at the turns. Remember if you hike down, you have to hike back up.

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!
