Just off the Grand Loop Road is a small pulloff with a viewpoint to lovley Undine Falls. Lava Creek drops 60 feet down the mountainside to create the two tiered falls. The placement on the craggy cliffside is just breathtaking. There is a short hike to get to better viewpoints.
The word Undine comes from German mythology. Undine were wise, female water spirits who lived around waterfalls. They would trick mortal men into marrying them, and then obtain their souls. The falls were named in 1885, by geologist Arnold Hague. The original name for them was East Gardner Falls.

Address: Grand Loop Rd between Mammoth and Roosevelt
