Beyond Latourell Falls

 

Did you know there is an upper and lower Latourell Falls? Most of us only visit the lower Latourell Falls, it is easy to get to right off the Historic Columbia River Highway. If your up for a 2+ miles hike, well worth it, you can visit the upper Latourell Falls. Better yet, do it backwards. Read below for an explanation of why you should do the Latourell Falls loop hike backwards.
Waterfalls, as we all know, are quite a treat.  So, for this (and I’d argue, all) waterfall hikes, do the work first – hike uphill in the forest first, and then, as you wind downhill, you’ll be rewarded with first the upper falls, and, finally, the lower falls.  A couple more hundred yards, and you’ll be back at your vehicle.  And a nice restroom.
