Finally Mountain biked this trail and it way worth the challenge . A beautiful trail with equall views .

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.

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.

great hike peaceful and the lake is beautiful can't wait to go back and explore the rest of the trails

I took the road up, and the trail down. I'm a little out of shape, but was able to do this entire hike without a bottle of water at around 7pm. It's an easy hike with manageable elevation gain. The views are not good. At least from this trail. Haven't found a good vista of the valley from this area, at least not yet. This hike was EASY.

Enjoyable trail run. The clearcuts were unfortunate though!

beautiful hike. We took the trail up, and the road back. We did not go to the furthest point due to some off leash dogs running around, which would have been a hindrance for our on leash alpha Aussie, but it was a lovely hike, none the less.

This hike was awesome. I loved the view at the end and would definitely recommend. Plus, you are under cover for a fair amount of time in forest so it isn’t too bad on a hot day. Just make sure you bring lots of water!

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.

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.

great trail for a sunny day. if you take the extendo trail to the 600 road you add a couple more miles to the loop and stay off the fire roads for a portion of the hike. the peak is also accessible from the soap creek parking lot.

I loved this hike. There's easy access to play in the water as well. we went in August so we enjoyed the cold waters.

Beautiful area.

Great trail to warm up on for the day. I usually head to the top of dimple hill after I finish this trail. To get a good sustained workout.

Hiked this on Memorial Day weekend - great trail! Steep (duh), and as others have mentioned there are a number of big blowdowns across the trail that you'll have to deal with. I counted 7 spots where I had to climb over, and 1 spot where I had to crawl under. No snow anywhere that I saw. Not heavily trafficked, though I did run into a couple of sets of people with dogs off leash and at saw at least one pair of mountain bikers descending - so be aware.

Great moderate hike. Saw a wild turkey and wild flowers. Directions are accurate. Left me wanting to explore the many other trails in that area.

Gorgeous hike! Trails are well maintained.

Beautiful site, awesome falls, serene, peaceful, and refreshing. not much hiking required, but trails are available.

decent trail. I usually end up way off coarse due to the trail being short. I combine other trails/ roads to try and get my goal of 20 miles a day.

Hiked on 4/26/18
Beautiful trail! There are some large logs you need to climb over and a few snow patches.
Absolutely loved the hike up!!

Finally made time to try this trail. It was a nice easy trip up and back to get back into hiking for the year. Slightly muddy in spots from the mountain bikes going down after the recent rains we got.

Good trail. Decent amount of people. Not really what I expected, but was still fun. Wouldn’t do it again but glad I did it!

First time to Falls, directions and trail markings not great, but Falls were lovely (especially Green Peak Falls). Short hike on nice trails.

Challenging at times, listened to owl talk to me and enjoyed the snowy view. I took a wrong turn and feel signage could be better. I will go again later Spring as too much snow closer to top. Lots of creek access for my lab so she was happy. 4 star because lack of signs.

Great views and a fun, challenging hike. Took me about 2:40 minutes to finish, I would have been quicker if it wasn’t for the 6” of snow on most of it! Crazy end of March weather.

Very pretty hike. will do it again.
