Shepperd's Dell - Search Nearby - Added by Hannah Kemp

A beautiful easily accessible waterfall along the Historic Columbia River Gorge Highway.

There isn't a parking lot for this waterfall unlike many others along the gorge, however there is a large amount of room to pull off beside the sign on the side of the road.

This waterfall is perfect for those who are looking for something scenic and easy to find. It features a paved path down which offers different viewpoints of the falls. However, the path towards the end isn't as well maintained so watch your step. You can walk along the bridge as well, which provides views of the Columbia River Gorge.

Get Here In The Early Spring!

I have lived here since 2005, but have only recently taken up photography. The waterfalls are one of my favorite places to photograph as I can practice many different techniques and they are easy to access, not to mention the beauty of the gorge! I decided to come up here this past Sunday March 19th on a day the sun was gracious to shine and I'm so glad I did! I have NEVER experienced the falls like I did this day, from all the rain and spring runoff they were so full! This waterfall is one that I especially love to photograph because of the many different view points, angles & techniques . One thing I recommend if you can swing it, try to time your visit to this waterfall with the light! I happen to get here when the sun was bouncing through the bridge, off the river! It made for some AMAZING PHOTOS!! Definitely bring a tripod for capturing those long exposure shots! I also recommend gear to cover you camera, especially if you visit during this time. The waterfalls are MASSIVE! I'm not sure if it's just this year, but I'll be honest, i took a lot for granted and got a second chance in life so although I've been living in the PNW since 2005 I have only been really experiencing what an ABSOLUTELY AMAZING BEAUTIFUL PLACE I live in!

Chill Pull Off

Driving along, it makes for a great little side stop. Might as well if your already there!
