The Elowah Waterfall is located in the Columbia River Gorge on the Oregon side. According to the book Romance of Waterfalls it’s got a Romance Rating of 7 out of 10. So, if you’re looking for a romantic place to take your date, this is it! It’s an easy hike too, not very long at all, less than 1 mile to get from parking along the freeway to the waterfall. To make it a little longer when you get to the falls and cross the bridge, keep going to trail #400, back down to the paved bike path along I-84, and walk back to the parking area beside the Freeway.
I’ve seen images of these falls with the water raging over the side, but on this Winter day that I went, the water flow seemed lackluster? Probably because we haven’t gotten that much rain so far during our Winter Season? That was somewhat disconcerting. My plan is to visit again sometime in the next month, and retake some of these same images to see what kind of change has taken place. It also might be a good idea to visit in the Autumn season to find an image after the trees have changed their color.
