HWY 242 CLOSED FOR SEASON A true sense of deep-forest solitude and mountain beauty is found at Proxy Falls. Hike the 1.5 mile (2.4 km) loop trail through open lava fields and dense forest to view two distinctly different waterfalls. Proxy Creek is part of the McKenzie River watershed in the Three Sisters Wilderness section of the Willamette National Forest. The road accessing Proxy Falls is typically closed to motor vehicles mid- November to mid- June. A $5 day use fee or Northwest Forest Pass is required.
