Syllabus
Lower Yellowstone Falls is a 0.5 mile round trip hike with 308 feet elevation gain. Located 72 miles west of Cody Wyoming. The trailhead is car accessible. June and September are the best months to enjoy this hike.


Overview
The Lower Falls is 308 ft. high and can be seen from Lookout Point, Red Rock Point, Artist Point, Brink of the Lower Falls Trail, and from various points on the South Rim Trail. The Lower Falls is often described as being more than twice the size of Niagara, although this only refers to its height and not the volume of water flowing over it. The volume of water flowing over the falls can vary from 63,500 gal/sec at peak runoff to 5,000 gal/sec in the fall.
