Route Type

Loop

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.

Stunning

The lower falls are a short jaunt to from the car, easy for a quick trip height of the waterfall makes for the attraction. Rock formations remind me of Iceland.

Gorgeous

Keep going there is a stunning 2nd waterfall one of the best waterfalls I have seen in my life ❤️

Awesome Hike

The lower falls that everyone sees are incredible do to the height, but the hike to upper Latourell falls is so worth it. The falls cascade down for a brief moment then funnel to the left where the water then plummets to a small pool.
