Firehole Falls is a small scenic roadside waterfall in Yellowstone National Park. Located on the 2-mile one way Firehole Canyon Drive. This off the main road waterfall is quick stop that can turn to a much longer adventure. The Firehole Canyon Drive is home to one of the two park sanctioned swimming holes. The swimming area is just a mile up the road from Firehole Falls. This 40-foot waterfall is located just south of Madison and makes for a scenic detour when in that part of the park. While smaller than many other waterfalls in the park it is still nice and makes the scenic Firehole Canyon a better stop.
Like most of the roadside waterfalls in Yellowstone Firehole Falls has signs posted and small pullout areas for vehicles. Firehole Falls makes for a nice little photo op before continuing on to bigger and better attractions the park has to offer.
