Explore Latourell Falls

2.4 Miles Total - 520 ft gain - Loop Trail

Originally added by Michael Matti

Take a short walk to the base of the falls, where there is a small pool, so you can get up very close. If you want to stretch your legs, take the 2.4 mile loop to the top of Latourell Falls.

Latourell Falls is a beautiful and unique waterfall in the Columbia River Gorge in Oregon. This amazing waterfall is just a few hundred yards from the road and parking lot. Once you park, there is a viewpoint for the falls that is straight ahead.

The view from there isn't that great compared to what you will find if you take the short trail that starts near the bridge and goes to the base of the falls. The trail is really short, only a few hundred yards. You can do some exploring once you reach the falls and go behind the falls if you wish. Latourell Falls has an unusually small pool that it drops into so you can actually walk right up to the edge of the falls for an epic photo op. Be warned though, you will get soaked.

Great for a quick stop or an easy hike

Latourell’s lower falls are towering and stunning and worth a simple quick stop to see. The hike really makes the trip worth it, it’s short and relatively easy but features an up close experience with another waterfall and a few great views of the gorge!

Love!

We were looking for a quick stop for good pictures on our way out to Oregon, and this was perfect one for quick and skipping crowds. I would have loved to to the hike, but we didn’t have time! We went late November, it was a bit cold but very work it. We hopped off trail to take pictures and go on the other side of the waterfall. Epic for a small walk and less people to deal with!

Easy hike

Great 2.4 mile loop. Great way to cool off under the falls mist.
