Good spot to let the children out and hike to see many wild plants, trees and flowers at a lower elevation before the pass opens. Great old trees!

Unreal, and hidden! You won't hear much about it. Go Eugene 1 hour east on 126. Go to 242 off the 126 and go about 10 miles on road that is about the width of two driveways. Not alot of traffic off season, so a nice wide. You will pull over to the left at Proxy trail. Go the "exit" route (forget the "in" route where the lava is - boring!). Go for about 1/4 mile and hit the upper Proxy falls. Go in, steer to the right of the falls, and climb up as far as you want. I stopped half way and was touching the water. You can then go on the left side of the waterfall, but that is boring. Very easy to get too. Then, go down the trail about 1/8 mile and go to the lower Proxy falls, and see a huge 100 foot waterfall. Unreal and completely great! If you went to Sahali and Koosah Falls, this is a close second. Well worth the trip. Easy hike. If you are adventureous, go the lower trail and climb down and go to the bottom pool of the falls. It takes an hour roundtrip, but is worth it. This is not talked about much, but is excellent, well worth it!

My first visit to Oregon. Proxy Falls was absolutely amazing! The hike was great and both falls we're not difficult to get to. I could have spent half the day there. Don't pass this place up, worth the trip.

Proxy falls is located on hwy 242, you can only get there in late summer. It was the most beautiful falls our family has ever seen. The path was challenging, but not difficult. We walked it the opposite direction than they suggest, viewing the lower falls first,much easier climb.

A short hike through the thick pine forest and lava rocks leads to a true PNW gem in the form of Proxy falls. Bring a tripod for slow camera exposures in the shade of the trees for that nature lovers look to your photographs! Lots of green moss and blue green waters to enjoy on a hot summer day!
