Uncle Tom's Professional Reviews and Guides
"A dramatic trip into the depths of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone."
--Bill Schneider, Hiking Yellowstone National Park (Falcon Guides).
"This downhill hike along Uncle Tom's Trail utilizes a steep metal stairway into the 24-mile long Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. These steps take you to an overwhelming view of the canyon at the base of the 38-foot Lower Falls. This trail offers close-up views of the rock spires and hoodoos in the eroded canyon walls. This hike is strenuous and not recommended for anyone without a healthy heart and lungs."
--Robert Stone, Day Hikes in Yellowstone National Park (Day Hike Books).
