We stopped here after the Bridal Veil Falls loop because it was way less crowded. It was one of the better stops we made along the route. Very lush area with the wonderful sound of rushing water. It was quite relaxing to just sit and rest for a bit when we got to the water falls area. Take a moment to look at the bridge too, it's a beautiful piece of architecture.

This is the second waterfall after Latourell Falls and the fourth stop on the Scenic Highway.
Blink and you'll miss it.
There is a tiny parking lot just after the Shepperd's Dell sign.
The waterfall drops in multiple tiers, but only the lower section (61 ft.) is really visible from the bridge. The upper portions of the waterfall are hidden back in the canyon, and are not very visible.
There is a set of stairs and a very mossy pathway going down to a little viewing platform.
The waterfall was uncrowded on a day when Multinomah was mobbed--it is well worth a visit, even if only for fifteen minutes.
There is also a historic bridge at the site which photographs beautifully.

It is a beautiful place! You will only have to walk a very short distance and the trail is paved. Parking is limited but people are usually there for a short period of time.

This little secluded fall area is easy to drive right by, but a very satisfying stop, so keep on the lookout. There is a little bit of off-road parking just beyond the sign post at the end of the bridge and then a short, curving, paved trail slopes down and around to the tumbling stream falls hiding in the trees. The wildflowers were in bloom along the back wall just before the falls, an additional bit of delight.

This is a cool waterfall and hardly anyone stops to see it because it's tucked back off the roadway view. There's a short paved trail that leads you close up to the falls. Stop #3 on the scenic highway falls tour.

Shepperd's Dell is a beautiful stop to break up your drive along the Colombia River Highway. It is well marked and right off the highway. There is a short and easy trail that dips down from the road - and leads to a beautiful waterfall.

Shepard Falls, a place of picturesque perfection. Serene stream swiftly slides, showcasing stunning scenery. Shimmering sunlight surrounds, sparkling splendor saturates. Spectacular spectacle, serene serenity. Sightseers savor sheer splendor, spellbound, speechless. Sounds of streaming water soothe, symphony of serenity. Scenic sanctuary, splendid sensation. Shepard Falls, simply sensational!

This was our second waterfall stop while driving down Highway 30. The trail is still closed, but you can still view from the bridge only a few steps from the parking lot. Even though trail is closed, it’s worth the time.

The walk to the falls was the highlight of visiting Shepperd's Dell. The short and easy path is carved from the cliff with an old, moss-covered stonewall running along side it. We enjoyed seeing the falls and historic bridge through the foliage all along the way.

We really liked the area. It was one of the less crowded spots. The falls are pretty , but you only really see them from a distance. The stone walkway and wall are really pretty though, and reminded me of a fantasy movie. Nice quick stop and pretty quiet.
