Crystal Falls is one of the prettiest waterfalls in Yellowstone National Park. Yet it is clearly overshadowed by its two neighbours and hence does not receive the attention it deserves. On one side of Crystal Falls is the astounding 109 ft. Upper Falls of the Yellowstone River, and on the other is the inspiring 308 ft. Lower Falls. But nestled in between the two, Cascade Creek forms Crystal Falls, a very pretty 129 ft. waterfall, dropping to the canyon floor in three tiers.
It is a very easy two minute walk from the parking lot for the Brink of the Upper Falls Trail to Crystal Falls. Walk back up the road from the parking lot until you see the signed North Rim Trail heading eastward. Walk up this trail a short distance to a signed "overlook", and you will have a glorious and probably peaceful view of the pretty waterfall. The North Rim Trail continues to the top of Crystal Falls, where there is a nice pool above the falls.
