Sherars Falls Bridge is located east of Tygh Valley between Maupin and The Dalles. Take Highway 197 south from The Dalles then turn east on Highway 216 (signed for White River Falls and Sherars Bridge). The bridge is about 7 1/2 miles from Highway 197, just below Sherars Falls. Be sure to jump on the down-river side in the middle of the bridge. There are many initials and X’s carved on the handrail letting you know where people have jumped before.
