Proxy Falls, also known as Lower Proxy Falls, is a cascade and plunge waterfall from a collection of springs on the shoulder of North Sister, that plunges into a gaping canyon near McKenzie Pass in the Willamette National Forest, near Belknap Springs, Oregon. The waterfall is notable for its main drop of 226 feet (69 m) which makes it one of the highest plunge waterfalls in Oregon.Plan to visit Proxy Falls and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Sisters attractions using our Sisters trip planner.
Proxy Falls reviews
An interesting trail to 2 wonderfully beautiful waterfalls. It says it is only 1 1/4 mile trail but after you are sure you have gone more than that, you all of a sudden find a waterfall. The trail..... more »
The hike to the falls is relatively easy. You get to walk though a lava rock field which was unique. The falls are stunning with water flowing over mossy rocks. more »
Beautiful and short trail if you are looking for a causal quick hike. It’s kids and pet friendly, not much of an elevation gain so it’s suitable for people of all ages. Definitely recommend at least one visit if you are in central Oregon area.
I stashed a sweatshirt behind a large dead tree along the lava field to lower falls. Unfortunately we looped back the other way. If anyone sees it, say hi for me!😆
