Plaikni Falls Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Wildflowers, a quiet canyon, and a beautiful waterfall on an easy and accessible trail. The newest trail at Crater Lake National Park, this quiet and easy path takes visitors away from the crowds of the Rim Drive and into the canyon of an extremely pretty 20-foot waterfall.
The trail was completed in late summer 2011 and, with the exception of a slightly steep section near the trail’s end, is wheelchair accessible. Before the trail was constructed, so few people knew about the falls that it didn’t have an official name. Park officials turned to members of the Klamath Tribe, who suggested Plaikni Falls, which means “from the high country.”"
