Unlike the other paths to waterfalls along the Historic Columbia River Highway which take you uphill, you must go down a slope to view Latourell Falls. From the parking area, the path drops down to the base of the waterfall, then eventually loops back to the road.
The lower section of Latourell Falls is a narrow stream falling nearly
250 feet over a sheer face of volcanic rock. You can also take the trail
to the upper portion of the falls, which plunges nearly 100 feet.
If you're adventurous and surefooted, you could walk underneath and behind the falls. You have to leave the path, though, and the rocks all around the base of the waterfall are coated with a mossy, slimy substance, that makes standing upright almost impossible.
I ventured about halfway around for this shot of the falls, then decided it too risky to go any farther.
