Lewis Falls, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming
Lewis Falls is a pretty 30-foot waterfall located just off of the main road about halfway between the South Entrance to Yellowstone National Park and Grant Village inside the park. These falls are located on the Lewis River, and are found just south of Lewis Lake.
These falls cannot be missed if you are driving south, and won’t be missed if you know where to look when you drive north. If you are driving south, they are located just to your right. You will reach the bridge that crosses the Lewis River just south of Lewis Lake, and look to your right, and you will see the falls.
There is a small parking area on the south side of the bridge, and there are a lot of areas to walk around to see the falls. On both ends of the bridge there are trails that you can walk up to get a closer view of the falls.
On the other side of the bridge, you will find beautiful meadows as Lewis River does its last bit of meandering through these open areas before the Lewis Canyon begins.
The Lewis Falls will be a quick stop along your drive in Yellowstone National Park, but definitely worth stopping for a photo, and perhaps lunch.
