Guy W. Talbot State Park offers opportunities for hiking, picnicking, wildlife watching, viewing scenery and viewing historic sites.
A modern picnic shelter is available for rent (and is reservable). While the park is terrific for a group or family picnic, the park is often uncrowded even on the best days because of its seclusion. A gently sloping grassy hill dotted with Port Orford cedars, Douglas firs, alders and maples invites Frisbee tossing and quiet relaxation.
The tiny town of Latourell (pop. 12) borders the north side of the park. Homeowners ask that visitors please respect their privacy. A trail underneath the Historic Columbia River Highway bridge leads directly to Latourell Falls (250′ tall), only a few minutes away by foot.
Vital stats: There is no fee to use this park. A fee is charged to rent the picnic shelter.
: Climate in this region changes drastically with elevation. The area receives a high amount of precipitation. Much of the precipitation comes from October to April in the form of rain at the low elevations and as heavy snow in the higher elevations. Winter temperatures are normally cool at the lower elevations and cold at the higher elevations. Although snow is possible in the lowest elevations, it is infrequent and does not stay on the ground for long. Late spring, summer and early autumn bring the best chance for clear, sunny days and bring moderate temperatures.
Location: Guy W. Talbot State Park is located along the Historic Columbia River Highway, 12 miles east of Troutdale.
