Latourell Falls

Latourell Falls Professional Review and Guide

"Latourell Falls is the closest major gorge waterfall to Portland. The 224-foot falls are as powerful and ominous as they are beautiful. The loop hike that visits Latourell and its upper falls is an easy jaunt, with breathtaking views, but start early or hike on the weekdays so you and your dog can avoid the crowds.

Starting from the parking area, hike up a steep, paved path to a very photo-worthy viewpoint. From here the pavement soon ends and the trail ascends to the top of Latourell Falls. Please avoid the temptation to take any boot paths leading down to the top of the falls. They are dangerous at best. The hike now joins the creek and the path leads high above lower Latourell to the lesser-visited upper falls."
