Hood-Gorge_Latourell_Falls_Loop_Hike

Just past Vista House along the old Historic Columbia River Highway, you can get to this family friendly hike to view the beautiful Latourell Falls. Only 2.4 miles round trip, this is a great stop if you are traveling along the Historic Highway in the Columbia River Gorge to view one of the many beautiful waterfalls this area is known for!

Trail Description

Beginning from the trailhead from the Historic Columbia River Highway (HCRH), follow the trail uphill to the left of Latourell Falls (or sometimes referred to as the lower falls). At the falls, the lichen-covered columnar basalt formations around the falls steal the show. Continue to the Upper Falls after crossing several bridges and following Henderson Creek. Finally you'll come to the upper falls, a two tiered drop: first a block fall that's almost hidden and then a plunge into a pool.
