Latourell Falls Loop

Latourell Falls Loop Professional Review and Guide

"The first major waterfall visitors see along the Old Columbia River Highway is Lower Latourell Falls, and if you were expecting to gradually work your way up to the best scenery, forget it! With its 249-foot plunge over a sheer, lichen-covered cliff, this falls’ beauty rivals any other in the gorge.

For hikers, the only downside to Lower Latourell Falls is that to see it, you barely have to leave your car. Fortunately, those who want to get a little exercise can take a very scenic loop trail that goes from the lower falls to rarely visited Upper Latourell Falls."

This is a wonderful fairly short trail to a beautiful falls in the Columbia Gorge. The beginning is flat right out of the parking lot through some cool deciduous forest at the bottom of a canyon. There is a gradual but significant climb up the canyon which is rewarded with a widening of the canyon and a very high waterfall with neon green moss covered canyon walls. The falls drops into a large pool which the trail skirts before returning on the opposite side of the canyon.
