Trail Notes

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.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. We 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! ✌
