Brink Of The Lower Falls

Near Canyon Village Yellowstone, WY


Brink Of The Lower Falls offers one of the very best views of the enormous power of the Yellowstone River. The Brink of the Lower Falls places you right on top of the massive 300ft drop off to the canyon below. The hike to this spot is not easy, with a pretty serious elevation gain over a ¼ of a mile. But when you reach this spot, you can capture some unique images of The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone.

From the viewpoint at the bottom of the trail, you can capture the exact opposite view that you get from Artist Point on the south rim. Around mid-day, you normally get a nice rainbow that forms looking east. If you walk back up the switchback and look down on the falls, you can also get some nice abstracts of the powerful flow from the falls. All in all, this hike is well worth the visit; but again, it is not easy.
