Kepler Cascades: Yellowstone National Park

Kepler CascadesKepler Cascades is a gorgeous roadside waterfall.  Conveniently located just a few miles south of Old Faithful on the way to West Thumb.  A short ten-minute stop for a large cascading waterfall count me in.  Kepler Cascades drops roughly 100 feet over a series of falls with the largest drop around 50 feet.  No it is not falls of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone but it is pretty in its own way.

There is a small parking lot where a short boardwalk will lead to a wooden platform.  It will not be the isolated spot for sweet serenity you are looking for when in the wilderness.  It is often overlooked by the majority of the parks visitors.  I have been there when I had the whole platform basically to myself and other times when the parking lot is practically full.  Just depends on time of day, season, and luck.

Kepler Cascades is one of the many roadside waterfalls in Yellowstone.  One of the better ones in my opinion. Absolutely worth the short time to see it and be on your way.
