Here’s a 1929 Oregonian article about Guy Talbot State Park and Latourell Falls area;

Guy Talbot–Latourell Falls park, March, 1929

The historic former Latourell Falls Chalet, circa 1916. The parking lot is now where this Chalet was, though bit of the foundation can be found above the upper falls viewpoint bench

  1. Have you been up to the plateau they described on the other side of Talbot’s Japanese bridge….I am wondering if we could still see the old wagon road described in the article.

    From the description it sounds like the summer house site is relatively the same minus the house.

    A field trip may be in order.

  2. After doing the trail clockwise per your suggestion I saw some old moss covered ruins on the downhill part of the return trail past the “scramble look-out” over the top of the falls. Is that the foundation for the chalet that you mentioned above, or is it some other mysterious ruins?

    1. Bill, those are some other mystery ruins. The ones I mentioned are the ones in the little historic photo on the book page, almost directly above the parking lot, at the top of the short steep trail to the falls viewpoint.
