On the brink

On the brink of Yellowstone's Lower Falls
Click on the image to see a short movie of the Lower Falls of Yellowstone in action.

The hike down to the brink was only three-eighths of a mile, but that three-eighths took place within 600 feet. The words you’re looking for here are “steep switchbacks.” Still, very much worth it, and images do not do it justice. Plan your own trip as soon as you are able.
