Our list of the Top 10 Best Wyoming Waterfalls is where we share these unsung attractions, including those outside Yellowstone National Park!

Big Falls

Big Falls was an elusive 150-200ft plunging seasonal waterfall in the Mt Charleston area by Las Vegas, and it’s very close to the popular Mary Jane Falls.

Little Adams Falls (Adams Canyon Lower Falls)

Little Adams Falls (also called Adams Canyon Lower Falls) was a short, overlooked, yet inviting 20ft waterfall within Adams Canyon downstream from Adams Falls.

Menace Falls

Menace Falls was an out-of-the-way remote and unheralded waterfall that probably had a height of 80-100ft in the Wyoming Range of the Bridger-Teton Forest.

Natural Bridge

Natural Bridge could be the only signficant natural rock span in Yellowstone National Park, but the cascade that flowed through it caught me by surprise.

Shell Falls

Shell Falls was an easy-to-visit waterfall, which formed from an ancient fault that shifted the bedrock and changed Shell Creek’s course to its 75ft drop.

Porcupine Falls

Porcupine Falls may be my favorite waterfall not in Yellowstone. Situated in the Bighorn Mountains, it had a 70-100ft drop with an inviting swimming hole.

Spearfish Falls

Spearfish Falls is perhaps the most attractive waterfall in Spearfish Canyon (or all the Black Hills) accessed by a short, easy trail of less than a mile.

Bridal Veil Falls

Bridal Veil Falls was a convenient 60ft roadside waterfall with a lookout platform right besides the Spearfish Canyon Scenic Byway south of Spearfish.

Roughlock Falls

Roughlock Falls was a waterfall nearby Savoy and Spearfish Falls, but this was tucked in a scenic side canyon on Little Spearfish Creek and easily accessed.
