9. Tower Fall Trail, Wyoming (2.5 miles)Learn More
A short, simple hike, and a go-to for tourists and out-of-towners, but also probably a necessary stop in Yellowstone. Try tackling it in November by snowshoe, when the unplowed trail presents a little more of a challenge, and bison, bighorn sheep, and bald eagles outnumber hikers. The Tower Fall Trail follows a road past the Calcite Springs Overlook to Tower Fall, a 130-feet waterfall that plunges into Tower Creek. Just above the falls, the creek passes through a scraggy, broken jumble of orange volcanic spires that look like giant incisors chopped out of a mountainside.
