For the truly adventurous and non-traditional couples, this location is simply stunning. But come prepared because a misty elopement under Latourell Falls is sure to bring all the is dramatic, moody, and romantic vibes you’ve dreamed of.
While the water can be a fun adventure, the location is actually quite easy to hike to and does not require the stamina of an athlete. Latourell Falls is the closest major fall in the Columbia River Gorge to Portland and is easily one of the most photogenic as well.

Just come prepared with the best shoes for the short walk, and keep in mind that you can always change to your formal shoes at the bottom! There’s absolutely no question to if you get wet, and the beautiful green moss can create an extra slick challenge, but the view is well worth it.
