Nice Falls Hike.

Well worth the 1.25 mile roundtrip trail it takes to get to both the lower and upper falls. The trail is a fairly easy walk, though there are some spots that are a little rocky.

The path goes two ways to the upper and lower falls, the path to the right is longer but very easy to follow and has a magnificent view of the falls from up high, and an easy way to get down to the water. My biggest complaint is the sign does not explain how far each path is, so we... More

Interesting hike and beautiful waterfalls. You need to climb as close as possible to these waterfalls if you want great pictures.

A terrific hike to a beautiful waterfall on a fairly shady trail. The scenery along the trail is also gorgeous and in addition to the Proxy Falls there is another short trail to the Upper Proxy Falls - a pretty waterfall and pool and worth a quick visit.

I just can't describe how beautiful these falls were. If you are a nature lover, you will love Proxy Falls. The hike is beautiful and unique, with one section of it covered in lava rock, and the falls are a must see. My sister and I could have sat by those falls for hours. When we looked up pictures on...

The hike is a loop, very scenic through different terrain and volcanic flows. Saw a lot of rhodies blooming along the trail in different parts. To access the base of the falls is off the trail and a bit steep. Need to climb over/under logs, etc. at the base.

Driving the Old McKenzie Highway is twisty, but delightful. A stop to make the easy hike into Proxy Falls is well worth the effort. Lovely setting, nice waterfall....

Fall may not be best time for ample water coming over these falls. Not as impressive as Koosah and Sahalie down the road. Very pretty area and worth stop and the hike.

Proxy Falls..! An unexpected treat. An easy hike on a well marked relatively easy trail. Parking and signs at the trail head.
