Virginia Cascade Drive, Yellowstone National Park

4.2
#6 of 6 in Scenic Drive in Yellowstone National Park
Meandering along a mountain creek through the heart of the park, Virginia Cascade Drive leads to the north side of the waterfall offering views along the way. Most of this one-way, scenic road is narrow, with sheer drops unprotected by guardrails along the entire route, so drive carefully and watch out for hairpins. As you pass Virginia Cascade, you will come across a small picnic area with a restroom, overlooking a verdant meadow.

  • The cascades are beautiful. We stopped at the picnic area to eat and saw three wolves. One wolf casually walked across the open area behind the picnic area. What a bonus!  more »
  • A three mile one way loop road. Virginia Cascade is the high lite. You will need to get out of car in order to get good view of Cascades.  more »

  • We took the side road nor knowing what we would find. It was beautiful and probably the least crowded site that we visited in Yellowstone. There was a nice picnicking site with a creek nearby. The falls are great, as you would expect. It should be on your list for the trip to Yellowstone.
