Latourell Falls is an exciting waterfall to see, as Latourell Creek plunges 214 ft. over a rocky cliff. From the parking area, you can either walk a short distance up the trail to a viewpoint. Or you can also walk about 0.1 miles to the base of the falls to get a close-up look.
It had been quite a few years since I had been here first, and I had forgotten how stunningly beautiful Latourell Falls was. With so many great waterfalls to see in the Gorge, and usually not very much time to see them, Latourell Falls was usually the one I cut out. This last time, however, I made it back, finally, and I was in awe. It is such a towering waterfall, the yellow colored lichen cliff walls are so amazing, and the gorge seems so huge and remote (even though it is quite a popular place).
Commonly cited as being 249 ft. high, my measurement came to 214 ft., not quite as high as the official measurement. Others have measured it around 224 ft. This leads me to believe it is not 249 ft. as officially noted, but is quite a bit smaller.
