  Latourell Falls
by Segolily

About 6.5 miles west of Multonomah Falls the highway passes the last waterfall easily reached by road. If you are coming from Portland it would be the first. This stunning waterfall freefalls nearly 249 feet in a thin wisp of water. Easily overshadowed by the more popular falls, if I lived in Portland this would be a weekend destination.

Located in Guy Talbot State Park which has no entrance fee, there are picnic facilities nearby and trails both long and short.

They were named for around 1887 after Joseph Latourell who was named postmaster of the Rooster Rock Post Office.
