Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming

Hike to Red Rock Point

0.6 Miles Total - 100 ft gain - Point-to-Point Trail

Originally added by Josh Packer

Lower Grand Canyon Falls is the tallest waterfall in the park at 308 feet. Red Rock Point gives amazing views of the falls and up and down the canyon.

Lower Grand Canyon Falls is one of the gems of Yellowstone and is the one of the most photographed spots in the park. Red Rock Point on the north side of the Yellowstone River gives amazing views up and down the canyon and is only a short .3 miles from the North Rim Road.

What's crazy is how long it took me to finally visit the falls, and I've lived within two hours of Yellowstone for most of my life. I had been to Old Faithful countless times but had yet to explore this cool place. What I love about this waterfall is that there are many trails around it that provide you with interesting and unique viewing angles of the waterfall. You can hike down the trail to the top of the falls, which provides a breathtaking view of the canyon overlooking this enormous waterfall. This makes for a moment you won't soon forget.

This is a must see in Yellowstone, so make sure to add it to your to-do list when you come.

Great views!

From this point you can see the beautiful views of the lower falls and you can see the great views of the valley below.

Don't let the geysers take all of your time!

In my opinion, this is what gave the geysers a run for their money! We are so glad we made this stop - absolutely gorgeous.

Worth it

if you are in the park you need to see this. It is extremely busy during the day so maybe try to get there early in the morning to avoid the tourists.
