Very beautiful trip my daughter and I rode our bikes stopped and 8 lock's lots of blackberries on the way on a beautiful summer evening

Great little hike!! With all the reviews I was wondering what this hike would entail. It was an easy hike, but so beautiful with old growth, lovely Creeks and waterfalls!

Pretty easy to navigate, but I could see how one could get confused on the trail. Was weary to sit or stand on the logs with the previous reviews about the ground wasps. My daughter and I had the hike all to ourselves with the exception of a quite photographer.
❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Went on to the powder house road to be accompanied to an owl. Beautiful walk, not too hard but a still has an incline! Would recommend!

Very pretty this time of year. Trail isn’t well marked in places but not difficult to navigate.

Easy, very pleasant walk. Quite busy with other dog walkers, joggers, and cyclists.

So gorgeous in the fall!

Definitely a great trail. Challenging for beginners but otherwise pretty relaxing.

Very enjoyable and dog friendly :).

Absolutely beautiful. Went in October and had the trail to ourselves. Took four kids with us and they did great. However, it was indeed poorly marked. I wish I had read the reviews and learned that the trail continued past the campground. We thought it just faded away there and turned to head back.

Hiked Sept 8th. Longer than expected drive, but wasn't bad. Falls were low this time of year, but still had enough water to be pretty. Lots of families out with small children at both falls. Probably won't have this trail to yourself, but worth the trek. Was a bit more up & down than I expected, so was more sweaty than I thought I'd be, so that was a bonus as I was expecting super easy, which it still was. Green Peak trail branched off of what looks like a campsite, off of a gravel road, so just look for that. We first thought it was a pretty worn trail up a hill, but that's not it, keep going to that site & the trail is off the back of the site. Good hike for a short hike.

As others said, quiet and pleasant.

Beautiful easy hike !

Overall, another great hike in the McDonald Forest. Only downside is that the majority of the hike is on forest/fire roads. I recommend taking Roads 600/680/700/790 to the top as there are signs at most intersections to point you to the top. However, grabbing a free map at the trailhead is a good idea since there are many trails in this area. Alternatively, you can take Road 770 from the Homestead Trail, but you need a permit to take the Southridget Trail which is in the Starker Forest. This hike has a steady incline no matter which way you take up providing a great workout. Nice bench at the summit to sit on and enjoy the view out over the Willamette Valley.

Nice short hike!

This was a great early morning hike! Definitely be sure to grab a Forest map at the parking lot as some of the markers are confusing. I ended up tacking on part of the Powder House trail to make it longer and it was a fantastic addition.

This was a lovely hike through old and new growth forests to two set of waterfalls. I wish “swimming holes” were a hike category, because this is a sweet little place to take a dip in the pool beneath the falls. Yes, there are ground wasps - and they got me, too. I put my clothes on the cedar log where they have a nest, oops! But otherwise it was a nice hike on a hot day, about four miles round trip.

Be careful when going to green peak falls. Just beyond the last tree on the trail right before the falls under the log right ahead is a ground wasp nest. They attacked our group and endured many stings but we got out ok. I wouldn't recommend bringing kiddos or dogs to the green peak falls.

used to love hiking here during college. fun place to play on the bike and walk the pup

Parts of it were absolutely beautiful. But it was hard to tell how to stay on the trail at times- and it went through a campground part way which was strange.

Great loop trail. Shaded the whole way and there are a lot of other trails that branch off of it. Dogs allowed and wasn’t very crowded (5pm on weekday). Great way to escape heat In summer. Highly recommend.

Great trail and stroller friendly

First of all it was really busy. Much busier than expected as it’s described as moderately trafficked. It was really confusing figuring out where the trail started as you walk right down into the waterfall from Alsea Falls. We ended up doing the Green Peaks Trail which was okay. The signage was better once on the trails but overall we didn’t enough it near as much as most others.

great trail for dogs! good afternoon romp for my pup and me. pretty mellow trail. good shade. will be doing this again.

Did this trail this morning, started at Homestead and took trail 770 upto the small side trail to the peak. Once you start on trail 770 is is a steep incline. Side trail is even steeper but brief. Great views and more for a workout then views on the way. Other trails are more scenic to top but enjoyable and I recommend.
Grab a map in the beginning, trails can be confusing.

nice easy hike. fun for the whole family

Most of the hike (that we ended up on at least) was on a big wide gravel trail. It’s doable but definitely took some breaks to catch our breath with the elevation rise. Beautiful view and even more beautiful coming down looking out west! Would do again

Great hike for the family even on a hot summer day. Lots of places to cool off in the water. Bring $3 for parking. We parked at the falls parking lot instead of the trailhead. There’s a lot more parking there and you can access all the trails.

Poorly marked trail and like Shawna said there is a sign pointing in the direction you need to go but you can’t see it and it’s only visible coming from the opposite direction.

Cool trail! A little overgrown in places so wear some pants. Kids had fun!

This is one of my more favorite hikes in Corvallis. It is a little bit longer than others but the feeling of remoteness when you get near the top is awesome. The final hike to the top on a steep single track is very memorable. And like most of the Corvallis hikes, you can do this during winter and fall as it always seem like there's less rain than in the Willamette valley.
