Shepperd's Dell is another scenic waterfall on the western end of the Columbia River Gorge, located in Shepperd's Dell State Natural Area. It's one of the lesser known falls in the gorge, but its very easy to access and worth a quick stop. The waterfall is named for George Shepperd, a farmer in the early 20th century who donated land to help preserve the natural beauty of the gorge. Much of the protected lands in the gorge were the result of such generous donations. The parking area is right along the side of the Historic Columbia River Highway and a short walkway across the street leads down to the falls. This waterfall is not nearly as high and mighty as many of the other falls and it can be difficult to view due to foliage. But, it has a rather unique hourglass shape and is definitely worth a stop. You can also get a good view of one of several historic bridges along the highway from here.
