Hiking spotlight: Latourell Falls

This was a brief trip so it shall be a short and sweet post for me.
Me and Mom took our first solo girls trip to the Columbia River Gorge, and did an enjoyable mini hike up to see Latourell Falls. This 2.4 mile loop hike is the closest gorge hike to Portland, and it is easy for pups, kids, and families to enjoy.

Mom tried making me pose on this rock.
I finally posed so we could hike on.
Halfway up the hike we diverged off the trail for a fresh waterfall treat.
We finally spot the lovely falls.
The beautiful Latourell Falls.

Rating for Latourell falls


I gave this hike two paws up because it was easy and fun for anyone to enjoy. There are many unique areas to stop, rejuvenate, and have a relaxing picnic lunch which we will definitely take advantage of next time we go with Dad. The trail is rated easy and your dog should be leashed throughout the trail. I recommend assessing your pup’s health before the hike, making sure to bring plenty of water, and staying close to your pup throughout the trail in case any stinky critters visit you.

  1. That sounds like an enjoyable day. I have had to stop walking through the woods with the dogs because of the poison ivy and oak. I really miss it, but not the misery that ensues.

  3. Great post, Scarlett! I think our Chief Barketing Officer would enjoy a hike like that. His little Chihuahua paws seem to be getting bored with the same old flatlands round home. His people would enjoy that hike, too! πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing! #FeetDoTravel
