Hiked on March 5th. Great views of the upper and lower waterfalls. Multnomah falls and others were closed due to the fires, but this was a great hike to take its place. The fall can be viewed from the parking lot, so its easily accessed if you are looking for something easier than a hike.

We went over spring break. Water has a way of calling to me. The sounds, the colors, the mist... Beautiful!

Hiked this today. Go early because it does get crowded. I started around 9:30am and by the time I got back the parking lot and surrounding areas were full. Some muddy spots, so some area are slippery. Beautiful hike! Once you hit the upper Falls the mist will cool you off.

Love this hike! It’s pretty short, but the falls at the end are beautiful. This isn’t a super easy hike for people with disabilities as it is kind of steep and there are stairs, including some steep stairs to the viewing deck. Older kids would enjoy it.

We hiked this trail in March 2017. It was strenuous going up. Bring plenty of water and protein food. It was worth it. Stunning views at the top. Watch out for people with dogs. They should not bring dogs on this trail.

The trail was great! It was muddy like other people said but we live where we live and it didn’t hinder the hike at all. No obstacles on trail and well maintained. So glad this beauty is open! If you want the solitude then take the upper falls hike loop. I had it all to myself this morning and I started late.

Wasn’t the best but then again I’m more into long hikes

My husband and I loved this hike. There are two waterfalls and a well maintained trail. I used my trekking poles for stability in the muddy areas and for grip on the steeper parts. I’m pretty heavy and not in great shape, so I took several quick breaks, but it was very doable and I’m looking forward to going back again soon.

Visited mid-March. Sunny but cold. Most other trails were closed due to the Eagle Creek Fire. Muddy and some sections are steep. Fairly crowded. Hiked with 10yo and 4yo who completed the loop without complaining. Passed a few folks stopping to catch their breath. Upper and lower falls are beautiful. You'll get a little wet at the bottom of the upper falls. Only complaint is the lack of trail markers. Lots of folks were blazing their own.

They opened the bottom platform- might be the only chance you’ll get a picture of the falls without someone standing on the bridge haha
Awesome falls, 3 stars only because hike isn’t open yet :(

3/24 Latourell Falls, beautiful!
Crowded, which I didn't like. However, because it was so muddy most people didn't go far..

Great views, lots of fun-but suuuuper muddy right now

Beautiful, quick and easy.

This trail is spectacular and is definitely worth the walk especially is it’s basically the only falls trail open right now. Definitely do it clockwise.

One of my favorite hikes. Great for beginner hikers or a quick daily walk in the woods. In the spring and summer I do this hike 3 to 4 times a week. Also going on a sunny morning it's a photographer's dream location.

Beautiful view of the falls but trails are closed I heard till April. Sad I didn’t get to do the hike!

Beautiful but very popular expect to share the beautiful views. Trail is in good condition but still has areas that are muddy!

Great hike for young kids. My 4 year old handled it like a champ. A lot of traffic on a sunny day with the other gorge hikes still closed but worth it!!!

My all time favorite hike. But it has gotten so crowded in recent years. I visited here just weeks before the fire closed it in 2017.

Very sad. But can’t wait for it to reopen.

Beautiful hike! Wear appropriate shoes-it was pretty muddy.

You can literally drive up too or walk up too this waterfall it's so pretty!

Fantastic hike, gorgeous in every way, waterfalls, lush greenery, flowers, mushrooms, moss, all that's missing are the little fairies :) Took us about 5-6 hrs, just what we needed.

Short moderately steep but the stairs helped. May 2017. Enjoyed the views and the lush green. And the waterfall was beautiful. Wish I was in better shape for the hike back out, had to stop once to catch my breath.

Amazing beginner hike. Definitely will be back

Had so much fun! A few areas were a little not kid friendly with a 2 and 4 year old but we just carried them. His is an amazing hike!

Went and hiked this on our way back from Seattle WA to CA, it was great the trail takes you to the top of the waterfall then down to the base of the waterfall

Its closed and fenced, but you can still see the waterfall

Fun hike, not to many people were actually taking the whole loop due to slush, so the trail was pretty empty. Nice trails, great for dogs and the falls are beautiful! Moments of silence were not taken for granted.
