This short hike follows a paved trail
downhill and around to an overlook of the Shepperd's Dell
Waterfalls. One interesting point of this hike is the
outstanding view you get of the old original bridge they
built over this creek.
In season, which is spring to fall, there are alot of
beautiful wildflowers along all of the gorge trails.
Below is a photo of the evasive flower Robert Geranium.
The Roberts Geranium is an envasive species
and not welcome in the gorge
How to get there:
Shepperd's Dell Falls is located immediately off of the Historic Columbia River Highway,
4 miles east of Crown Point or about 1.75 miles west of Bridal Veil State Park.
Parking can be found on the east side of the bridge, with a short trail leading to a
viewpoint adjacent to the lower portion of the falls.
