Very, very easy trail.

Very pretty hike. will do it again.

Gorgeous but be very careful. We found bear scat today! Google maps has not been updated. there is a log that fell, so the road doesn't even look like a road and is closed. the falls are amazing.

This trail is not easy for sure, there were parts that were very muddy and nearly washed out. Careful where you step else you could slide down the mountain. Totally worth the risk however, the further you go the better the views. Still snow on the ground in March, one of the most beautiful hikes I've encountered yet. Another downfall would be the sound of gun fire from below, but if you can block out the noise this can be a relatively peaceful hike.

Hreay trail. We met the director of Land Trust and learned a lot about the area.

Great place to walk the dog and get some exercise. Beautiful on a sunny day but Thursday there was a rainbow across the little valley and I did not have my phone to take a picture! Trails are still muddy in the shade.

trails are not marked very well but, still a fun easy hike

Awesome views!
For being so far west, the large meadow system atop horse rock ridge offers stunning views of high cascade peaks that will surprise most visitors.

Nice gradual up hill climb. Great panorama views at the top near a parking lot.

Both times I've gone, it's been too foggy to see anything. Great trail though, lots of snow right now!

This is a great area but I'm yet to find the second falls. The trails are poorly marked. I would recommend tracking your mileage or recording your trail to keep on track.

This hike was AMAZING! Honestly, one of my favorite hikes I’ve ever been on. You start in wooded beauty then break out into a mountainside meadow. The views were breathtaking. The low traffic made for a perfect, relaxing Saturday afternoon with the pups. Easy trail for dogs. My pups enjoyed the freedom of low traffic and being able to explore off leash. Through the duration of the hike, I only saw one other couple on the trail. It was perfect serenity.

AMAZING views!! We did this hike 2/15/18 and There was snow! It was slippery at parts, and steep but well worth it. Once you get to the research building go down the road to see another amazing view. That’s was as far as we went but I’m sure you could follow that road for more adventures.

great hike, AMAZING views!! not too difficult, just a few steep areas. highly recommended!

Very happy that the people who use these trails clean up after themselves and their animals.

Solid winter hike, not too busy. Great swimming in the summer. Beautiful falls year round.

This trail has such amazing views of the Valley! Tricky to find- but once you do find it- you will be so glad you did.

Great trail! Views are fantastic... the only negative was all the shooting that could be heard in the valley below.

This was a great afternoon winter hike. One thing to keep in mind for winter hikes is that trees may have fallen and yet to be cleared. We had a few tree trunks to cross over that would change the difficulty to Moderate.

Another note is to make sure to make sure to wear shoes with traction. We saw people on the trail in rain shoes, aka slickers. This trail has several sections of ascending and descending areas that can be muddy and slippery.

I would also recommend going on to Green Peak Falls after seeing Alsea Falls. There is a $3.00 day use fee payable at the box. Take correct change. None provided.

Amazing views of the cascades and the valley. Felt at one with the universe out here.

Difficult trail for occasional hikers. Moderate trail for consistent hikers. Mostly well tended pathway hikers and bikers share. Views at the top are worth the bun-burn. I find the first mile in from the trailhead to be wonderfully beautiful due to a diversity of flora and variant topography. Weekdays are blissful days to go to avoid heavy use times.

Amazing and rather well maintained.

Great trail with amazing views. While it does get steep in a few areas it's a pretty easy hike.

Trail is in great condition and is snow-free all the way to the summit.


Great trails for hiking. We took a few detours and ended up with a 7.5 mike trek. Only complaint, too many dogs off leash!

Great hike with great views.
