Its too easy to pass!
This is a super short hike to an often overlooked waterfall. Seriously, its about as short of a hike as you can possibly imagine and doesn't take more than a couple minutes to walk it. So.... why would you pass it? Sure, most of the waterfall is already visible from the hwy, but its always fun to get a bit closer!
Keep a close eye on any small children or pets you bring with you on this trial. The only thing separating you from a tumble over the falls is a small guard rail at the end of the hike.
From the parking pullouts along Historic Columbia River Hwy, walk towards the Bridge over Shepperd's Dell Falls and look for a trail leading down a series of stone steps. Walk down the steps and follow the path as it curves along the hillside. The trail ends at the base of a small waterfall that cascades over the edge of the cliff and out of site towards Shepperd's Dell Falls.
