This loop hike brings you to the base of the falls and then on a hike to the top of Latourell falls.
Easy trail you can walk right up to the waterfall and on top of it. Gorgeous. Enough said.
I can't believe I have never hiked these falls! Despite the crowded parking lot (pro tip: in the town of Latourell there are bathrooms, a picnic area, and some other parking), the hike starting from the left of the loop in the parking lot felt uncrowded. We came midday on a Sunday expecting madness so we were pleasantly surprised to go 15 minutes without seeing others on the trail. An inch of rain the day before had the falls gushing, and the sunny day kept it from being chilly except at the bottom of the falls. I'd put the hike somewhere between easy and moderate- at times steep and uneven, but I saw at least three distinct places to cut the loop and make a shorter total hike. Great scenery, nice and clean!
Good Hike... Needs better signs... Start from the left to complete the loop... uphill right from the start
Great hike. Kid friendly. Both my kids completed the loop without problems (ages 4 and 6)
The Falls are beautiful and similar to multnomah where you don't have to hike to see it. I would suggest making the extra effort to do the loop though because the upper falls is worth the climb. There is also a viewpoint that doesn't disappoint.
if you hike up to the top there are fewer tourists. most people go to the lower falls for photo ops. we hiked the three miles up. ran into so few people even day after Christmas. It was cold by the falls but really not bad overall. nice places to stop and take pictures or enjoy company along the way.
fun little hike. Not very technical but you do walk along some drop offs. would only recommend dogs if they are on leash and well behaved.
Perfect easy trail.
