  • This is quite a drive out there on tight turny roads but well worth the stop. Parking can be hard to find, but it was a very easy hike. If you start clockwise on the trail, you will meet the first fal...  more »

  • The trail consists off an upper and lower falls, that form a loop. The upper falls pools at the base, and sends to come and go from nowhere. The more spectacular falls is the lower one, but there's a slight scramble down and walk through the small stream to get to it. This little bit of extra effort is more than worth it though.
  • Proxy falls under the right light, is one of the most majestic waterfalls in the PNW (in my humble opinion). We just spent the past weekend working our way through some amazing locations, and Proxy has always been one of my favorites. This time I was finally able to get the shot I'd been hoping for. This shows the scale, the power, and how small we really are compared to mother nature. Remember to pack out what you packed in. Please don't leave garbage at any one of the beautiful locations in our PNW. Keep it clean. #leavenotrace. ig: parker_burkett
  • Proxy Falls in the Three Sisters Wilderness in Central Oregon is among Oregon’s most frequently photographed waterfalls. With its multi-tiered horsetail appearance, it is one of the most photogenic waterfalls in the Pacific Northwest and has been featured in many calendars and postcards over the years. Proxy Falls has a height of 226 feet and is fed by springs on a shoulder of North Sister. The falls get their name from Proxy Creek which tumbles over a moss covered basalt column of rock face. The best flows are year round. The magnitude and beauty of Proxy Falls is unbelievable – especially when you’re standing right next to it. Considering that you can scramble right up to the falls, this is one of the most enjoyable waterfall experiences in Oregon.
