Latourell Falls is usually the first waterfall seen along the Columbia Gorge Scenic Highway. Because of this, it usually leaves quite an impression on first-time visitors. The falls plunge 224 feet over a massive wall of columnar basalt – some of the best formations in the Pacific Northwest – before cascading hastily toward the Columbia River. This waterfall is usually most recognized for the large patch of bright yellow lichen adorning the cliff face to the right of the falls, and this characteristic has led many famous photographers to give this location their treatment. The drainage of Latourell Creek is rather small, so the falls become significantly less impressive later in the year, but are always worth stopping for a quick look.

My wife and I were on a tight time schedule, so we didn't take the hike at Latourell Falls, but we walked up to the viewing area to see the waterfall and take some pictures.

Like Multnomah Falls, this is another waterfall that is close to the parking area and can be seen after just a short walk to the viewing area. There are longer hikes that get you closer to the falls, but if you're short on time, this is a great stop to take some photos and be on your way!

I was in "see as much as I can in one day" mode, so I liked stopping here. We parked (parking was tight), then walked over the bridge to where the trail starts. We just walked down to the waterfall lookout area, which was a super short walk, perfect for our needs, but I bet the rest of the hike is great.

Easy access parking. Easy trail to viewpoints, to include the bottom of the falls.
