Brink of the Lower Falls

The Lower Brink of Yellowstone Falls trail is a steep climb down to the viewpoint of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. The hike is a lot easier than the way back up, however, the massive, cascading waterfalls are simply amazing. Do not forget your camera for this one!

Trail Difficulty – Easy to Moderate

The trail begins right beside the washrooms. It drops approximately 328ft down to the viewpoint over the Lower Yellowstone Falls, with efficient switchbacks the entire way. This allows for a wide variety of fitness levels!

From the viewpoint you will be right at the crest of the Lower Falls. The raging Yellowstone River tumbles down 308ft, constituting the largest volume waterfall in the United States’ Rocky Mountains. You will also be able to look down the spectacular Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, a 984ft deep canyon carved over the ages by this powerful river. Hike back up the way you came and slog through the traffic back to Canyon Village.
