If you’ve never been to Cave Falls on Fall River, or if it’s been a few years, I highly recommend a day trip to this spectacular area for either a picnic, day hike or fishing. Cave Falls is located in the southwestern boundary of Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. You can get there by following the road east of Ashton, Idaho, State road 47. The falls are about 23 miles from Ashton.
We recently took kids to the area for a fun day hike and picnic, and of course for some fishing. The day proved extremely productive. Not only did we enjoy the gorgeous scenery and exploring the beauties this corner of the world offers, but we also caught a lot of fish! Nothing large in size by any means, but it was one of those days where you couldn’t throw your line in the water and know a fish would be greeting your line! This is my favorite kind of day to experience with kids, it makes the whole sport of fishing more exciting and plants that desire to go again.
The day was made even more special by the fantastic scenery! Cave Falls is the widest waterfall in Yellowstone, at 250 feet across. Want to hike? The area offers great short trails (3-5 mile walks or hikes) and also serves as a gateway for your more serious hikers who might want to experience the Bechler area such as Union Falls, Rocky Ford Loop or Dunanda Falls.
