Where are Lewis Falls?

Located in the southern area of Yellowstone and roughly half way between the South Entrance and Grant Village, Lewis Falls are easily accessible from the South Entrance Road. You'll cross a bridge and the falls will be off to the west. You can't miss them if you are coming from the north. From the south, make sure to pull off after you cross the bridge and check them out.

When are Lewis Falls accessible?

The South Entrance Road is closed to vehicles in the winter, making the falls only accessible during the late spring, summer, and fall.
