Summary: Another easily accessed waterfall in Yellowstone. Yellowstone is a marvel, full of waterfalls and other amazing sights. Definitely something to see.

Firehole Falls is in Yellowstone National Park, just south of Madison. There is a short one way side drive through Firehole Canyon. This waterfall is smaller than many of the others in Yellowstone, but it is still interesting. There are cascades and small falls above and below the main falls.

The Firehole River flows through several of the geyser basins, and most of the geysers and hot springs eventually empty into the river. I would guess the river is a bit warmer than most. There is a swimming area upstream of Firehole Falls.

Nearby Falls

Yellowstone is full of waterfalls. The Upper Falls and Lower Falls are the grandest, and easily seen from several viewpoints.

Many of the others are roadside falls, such as Firehole Falls, Gibbon Falls, Kepler Cascades, Lewis Falls, Moose Falls, Rustic Falls, Tower Falls, and Undine Falls. Others, such as Mystic Falls require a hike of a few miles, and there are many more wild and remote waterfalls.
