Description

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.

Reviews

This is such an unexpected waterfall right off the highway...just walk a short distance and you will find yourself in amazement at it's size and beauty!

I enjoyed this spot the most out of the waterfalls we visited on our trip through Oregon. It was lovely and a lot less tourist-y than Multnomah. If you want to get good shots, make sure to bring a camera with a wide angle lens. I only had my iPhone with me and while I did manage to get a full shot using pano and tilting my phone horizontal, it was a pain and the shot could have been a lot better.

If you come to shoot pictures make sure you pack extra lens cloths because your lens is going to get wet!
