The Uncle Tom's Trail in Yellowstone National Park, is a 1.1 mile out-and-back trail that leads down to Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River at the Yellowstone Grand Canyon.
This GPS data covers slightly more than just the Uncle Tom's Trail - it also includes a portion of the South Rim Trail, which gives views to the Upper Falls on the Yellowstone River.
The staircase down Uncle Tom's trail to Lower Falls is very strenuous with about 350 steps and is not especially pleasing for people who are afraid of heights, but the view is worth every step.
This is one of the best hiking trails in Yellowstone National Park.
MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.
It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, and site maintainance . I simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.
You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 👍 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄
Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
