Guy Webster Talbot and his family used this property as a summer estate until 1929 when they donated it to the state. Today, it's a beautiful picnic park. A modern picnic shelter is available for rent (and is reservable).While the park is terrific for a group or family picnic, the park is often uncrowded even on the best days because of its seclusion. A gently sloping grassy hill dotted with Port Orford cedars, Douglas firs, alders and maples invites frisbee tossing and quiet relaxation. The tiny town of Latourell (pop. 12) borders the north side of the park. Homeowners ask that visitors please respect their privacy. A trail underneath the Historic Columbia River Highway bridge leads directly to Latourelle Falls (250' tall), only a few minutes away by foot.

Great length for kids. 6yo and 4yo had a blast.

We enjoyed this trail very much... it was beautiful. we went to the lower loop part which has a bridge and you can get really close to the waterfall... We took alot of great pics... there is parking and bathrooms available too... the trail is more smooth not too many rocks... My son said it was the best day ever.

Amazing waterfalls you can walk behind or even walk right under! Totally worth the hike to both the upper and lower falls, each one is very unique.

One of the trails we tried in our recent trip to Portland, its a loop and we get to see both lower & upper Latourell falls

Not sure what the hell made people think this was "easy". Super Steep inclines and little signage, this a "moderate" hike. Maybe I misread the map? But, the trailhead sign is labeled as such.

Neat Falls
