Overview

This is an easy loop trail to Proxy Falls and Upper Proxy Falls (although Proxy Falls is the main attraction here).

Starting at the trailhead, you can head right to hike through some interesting lava fields on your way to Proxy Falls. This leg is the long way, so if you're looking for a really easy hike, head left as this leg is much shorter to get to the falls.

The trail has a little up and down but nothing too crazy. Once you're at Proxy Falls, you'll be looking down at it from above on a small ridge. There's a trail to get down to the base, which many people do but it's a little bit of a scramble. It's an amazing waterfall, especially up close due to it's size.

Getting Started

The road to get here is paved the entire way, and is part of a main highway mountain pass but beyond this is closed in winter. There's a bathroom, but not a lot of parking, maybe 20 spots total. A Northwest Forest Pass or day pass is required to park here.
