Crater Lake National Park
Plaikni Falls is located along the East Rim Drive within the Crater Lake National Park at the south end of Mount Scott. The waterfall is located in a glacier carved cliff surrounded by walls of petrified volcanic ash.
The location of Plaikni Falls wasn't known by many until the park constructed a new trail in 2011, making the Plainki Falls trail one of the most popular destinations along the Crater Lake Rim Drives. The trail to the falls is surrounded by old-growth fir and hemlock forests rich in wildflowers.
The name of the waterfall stems from a Native American word that means "from the high country".
