Yellowstone National Park
Virginia Cascade is located along the road that runs through the middle of the Grand Loop, connecting Norris and Canyon (this is the road at the middle of the park's figure-8 highway). To see the waterfall, take the short, one-lane, one-way road that parallels the main road.
Virginia Cascade was a worthwhile diversion from the Norris Geyser Basin area. It's only a couple of miles from Norris Junction. The road runs next to Gibbon River, which provides the water for Virginia Cascade. Unfortunately, there's no good place to park at the point where you get the best view of the cascade (and it would be unsafe to walk back, since the road is narrow). So, you'll have to settle for a view of the brink of the falls, at the point where the river is just starting to tumble downhill.
Climb down a bit from the road, and you'll find a nice perch.
Once you're back at the main road, turn back and return to Norris, then head south toward Madison.
