This hike offers a walk along the Yellowstone River with the trail, steep walls of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone on each side. En route to the river are two separate locations to view Tower Falls. The first view is from an overlook along the trail. The other is from the base of this 130-foot falls with its volcanic pinnacles towering above.

This trail has been limited to the falls overlook about 150 yards from the beginning. The continuation of the trail down to the yellowstone river has been closed since 2007. Great overlook but if you're looking to hike down to the river pick another trail.
