Create an itinerary including Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone
The massive Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone is about 39 km (24 miles) long, between 240 and 370 m (800 and 1,200 ft) deep, and from 0.40 to 1.21 km (0.25 to 0.75 mi) wide. If you go to Artist Point, which provides an excellent view of the winding river and rock walls and gives a better sense of the canyon's size, you'll be able to view the area from about 50 m (160 ft) away. This may take you about half an hour, but the vistas you take in from the edge of observation point will remain with your for a lifetime.

  • Must do! It is almost a religious experience to see the waterfall from Artist Point, Do not miss this on your trip to Yellowstone.

  • One of the most memorable views in Yellowstone. Just a short walk and a few stairs to see the falls. There was a ranger on hand to answer questions which was nice. Can’t miss this photo opportunity...
