These Falls are really nice and so is the hike. There are different hikes available. The most direct trail is not very far from the rest area. We visited many Falls that day, and Latourell Falls was our favorite.

The waters that falls down is a sight to behold. One can feel its water vapour when nearing it. One can take a short trek to the falls and take beautiful snaps of its breathtaking view.

Title: A beautiful 2.3 mile loop around Upper and lower Latourell Falls.

Latourell Falls is located in Guy Talbot State Park. This in on the old Columbia River Gorge Highway between Vista House and Bridal Veil Falls. You cross a bridge and pull off into the parking area right after you cross the bridge. There was restroom facility and a few picnic tables here and that was about it. Except for two trails. One trail leads down lead to the bottom of the lower Latourell falls and the plunge pool with fantastic view of this about a 249-foot waterfall. The other trail goes all the way up to a bridge at the splash pool of the 100-foot Upper Latourell Falls. The trails runs alongside Latourell Creek. This upper falls area is all part of the George W Joseph Natural Area. It starts when you get to the top of the Lower Latourell Falls area.

Once you get to the top area of Lower Latourell Falls you are in the George W. Joseph State Natural Area. The trails runs along Latourell Creek. It crosses a bridge at the splash pool of Upper Latourell Falls at around the 0.8 miles point.

Continuing on this loop trail will ring you back down along the west side of the creak and down to the Scenic Highway to the west end of the bridge. You can either cross the bridge and return to the parking lot. Or cross the road and walk down the stone steps and follow the path to the lower part of Talbot Park, where you will find a large grassy picnic area. It has a picnic shelter, various picnic tables scattered all about the area. There are a few houses across the road just north of the park. These houses are all part of the tiny town of Latourell.

From this secluded park below the scenic highway you can follow a footpath that will lead you under the highway bridge and straight to the bottom of Latourell falls and then back up to the parking lot where you started.

August 23, 2107 - We decided to take the ultra scenic 1 hour or more drive to Dalles.
We took I-84 eastbound to the Troutdale exit. Follow signs for the Scenic Loop drive. Then, we followed the drive along the old Columbia River Highway, the first in our nation to be named a National Historic Landmark. On this route we encountered breathtaking views of the Columbia Gorge, Mount Hood and several other famous waterfalls on our way to the Multnomah Falls parking area.

We were surprised and delighted at the Latourell Falls, the first waterfall we came upon during our leisurely drive on Route 30. Optimum viewing is only a short walk from the parking area although it is a steep hill to climb. But, the walk is worth the vista.

This was my favorite of the waterfalls along the trail along the Columbia! It was not very crowded at all (Compared to the others) and its view is truly breathtaking. I recommend doing both the upper hike to the top (you can walk out right onto the falls if you're really brave and willing to take the "off" trail), and the lower hike to the bottom of the falls (you can pretty much get right under it). Neither is overly difficult or time-consuming. Parking was easy for us at about 10:30 in the morning. Even if this was the only falls you visited, it would be worth the short trip from Portland!
