The waterfalls in the South Grand Loop are sprinkled amongst the the geyser basins, which dominate this section of the park. It includes attractions such as Old Faithful Geyser, Morning Glory Pool, Grand Prismatic Spring, and even the erratic Steamboat Geyser. On the southeast corner of the park, Yellowstone Lake dominates the area with its deep blue lake separating the Grand Loop from the remote Thoroughfare region.

Amongst the waterfalls sprinkled in this interesting landscape are Fairy Falls, Mystic Falls, and the strangely alluring Gibbon Falls.

The appeal of waterfalling in this area was the opportunity to combine the waterfalls with some geyser touring as well as a chance at some wildlife spotting (e.g. moose).
