Crecelius Cascade is one of the many unmarked waterfalls found in Yellowstone National Park. In fact, some have said that Yellowstone has the most waterfalls per square miles in the world. With over 300 waterfalls and counting many of them unnamed and off any marked trails Yellowstone is a waterfall hunter’s paradise. Crecelius Cascade like so many other waterfalls will not be labeled on any national park map. However, unlike those, Crecelius Cascade is a wonderful roadside attraction. Located directly off the East Entrance Road on the south side, just before Sylvan Lake. Unlike many of the other roadside waterfalls Crecelius Cascade has no pullout or sign that marks its location. It is possible to park on the side of the road and take a closer walk to the falls. Crecelius Cascade is a pretty two-tiered waterfall that might be seasonal. We have only been on the East Entrance road twice, in early summer and Crecelius Cascade was flowing during both of those trips.
The abundance of natural richness is all around in Yellowstone. Looking for things not found on the park map is one of the great things about the park. A personal new discovery is just around the corner in Yellowstone. That is why I love the park and can’t wait to get back there.
