This loop trail travels through open lava fields and dense forest, offering views of two waterfalls. 6,000 years ago glaciers cut this canyon out, now these two falls run over the glacier cut cliff. Lava from cinder cones near North Sister then filled the valley floor. As the water falls over the cliff and down into the porous lava it sinks back underground so it appears as if the water just disappears, without an outlet.

Hiked it August 28, 2016 was surprised at how much water was coming over both falls at this time of year definitely recommend hiking down to the base of lower Falls what a great view I believe better than a lot I've seen in the Columbia Gorge

Beautiful, pretty easy trail with a few steep spots and climbing over or under fallen trees. My dog and I loved it!

I went here for the first time on a whim not really knowing what to expect. The trail was easy to find, just park by the proxy falls sign. It starts on the opposite side of the road as the bathrooms. The trail was pretty trafficked but worth the views. Once at the lower falls it requires some climbing and potentially crossing water if you want to get closer to the falls, which is totally worth it!

Path was easy to follow and clear. Make sure to see lower falls first and then continue to upper as trail loops around.
