WHAT TO SEE
This one-way road takes you to four overlooks of the canyon and the waterfalls. The accessible portions of the North Rim Trail take
you to additional views between the overlooks.
Brink of Upper Falls:
A paved path leads you toward the brink, but includes many steps. For another view, continue right at the fork. You will be on a wheelchair-accessible portion of the North Rim Trail, from which you can see the rapids before the falls, and the brink.
Follow this road to views of Upper Falls at Uncle Tom’s Point and of Lower Falls and the canyon at Artist Point. The path to the Upper Falls view may require assistance. The lower overlook of Artist Point is wheelchair accessible
Scenic valley of the Yellowstone River, between Canyon and Fishing Bridge junctions, famous for wildlife watching. No designated parking, but the large pullouts may have enough room to maneuver a wheelchair. Nearest accessible restrooms at Mud Volcano or Canyon areas.

Some groups of Shoshone Indians, who adapted to a mountain existence, chose not to acquire the horse. These included the Sheep Eaters, or Tukudika, who used dogs to transport food, hides, and other provisions. The Sheep Eaters lived in many locations in Yellowstone.
