Reservation efforts in the Columbia River Gorge began long before the 1986 National Scenic Area Act. During the early 1900s, advocates for a scenic highway recognized the beauty of the gorge should be preserved for future generations. Upon completion of the Historic Columbia River Highway in 1915, generous land owners donated property to create scenic retreats along the route. Guy and Geraldine Talbot donated the land surrounding Latourell Falls to the State of Oregon in 1929.
Located along the Columbia River Highway (off of I-84) and not too far from Multnomah Falls, 250+ feet Latourell Falls is powered by the Latourell Creek and is one of 77 (yeah, seventy seven) on the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge.
