Latourell Falls, Corbett

#1 of 6 in Parks in Corbett
Waterfall · Nature / Park
Latourell Falls is a waterfall along the Columbia River Gorge in the U.S. state of Oregon, within Guy W. Talbot State Park.

The Historic Columbia River Highway passes nearby, and at certain locations the Lower falls are visible from the road. Near the base of the falls, a parking lot and path were erected to assist visitors to the site. Visitors must hike along the 2.1-mile (3.4 km) loop trail to see the upper falls.

Latourell is unique among the best-known Columbia Gorge waterfalls, in the way that it drops straight down from an overhanging basalt cliff. Most of those falls (even the famous Multnomah Falls) tumble to some degree.

Latourell Falls is an excellent example of columnar basalt formations.

  • This a pretty waterfall with two different parts. The lower part is much easier to hike to and see. The upper part has more of an incline to get to but well worth the hike to see it.  more »
  • We stopped on the Columbia river gorge drive and walked the short 1/4 mile to the beautiful lower falls overlook that is easy to reach. There is an architecturally stunning bridge nearby with a trail....  more »
  • Use Sasquatch Shuttle’s parking lot and hop-on/hop-off service so you can relax and don’t have to fight traffic. This is one of their stops. We did the 2mile RT upper falls loop on a hot humid...  more »
  • Literally have fallen in love with this place.. Gorgeous ~250 ft stunning waterfall. You can view it right off the road but i highly recommend hiking down to the falls (very short hike), to see its real beauty. We got to go very close and feel the lovely spray of the falls in ourselves. There is also a trail that takes you to the upper falls but in the interest of time we skipped the hike up.
  • We live in SUCH a beautiful area!!! So many places to visit, hike, kayak and photograph, we can go somewhere different every day for years and never see the same place twice.
  • This falls was absolutely beautiful. The lower falls is just a short walk away to a nice viewpoint or a downhill jaunt to the base looking up. The upper falls was a steep hike but on a beautiful trail that was well worth it! The "alternate trail" was longer but had some cool surprises.
  • Taken to this waterfall on a tour. You need to wear closed toe shoes with good grip as you must walk downhill to really see the beauty of this waterfall. I highly recommend seeing this
  • Both the lower and upper Latourell Falls are amazingly beautiful! I love it that I can walk right up to the bottom of the falls!!
