Beautiful area, very short hike

great trail for kids and dogs

amazingly beautiful place

Really great. We opted to do this trail over Kentucky Falls after reading reviews that the road to that trailhead was rough. We were there first week of September and saw maybe 6-10 people the entire loop, not bad. There are some crawfish living in the gentle streams below, hiding in the rocks. “Swimming” is possible also, but since it’s so cold, we just kept jumping in and getting out immediately. Many different small waterfalls leading to the main waterfall at the end, I would recommend parking at the further parking lot to really experience this area.

Pretty area. Easy hiking!

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.

Beautiful trails and falls but over populated. Sadly people are starting to leave trash behind and large groups are blocking paths often.

Beautiful easy hike !

Love the waterfalls and a great short refreshing hike with the kids

This is one of my favorite sub-1 hour hikes in and around Lebanon. There can be a lot of people in the park on any given weekend, but most evenings it’s fairly low traffic. The upper trails are narrow and are feeling a bit overgrown but it’s still gorgeous.

I walk the loop counter clockwise from the bottom lot and get the stair climb out of the way early which makes the rest of the path a breeze.

We love this trail. You can either stay on the path or if you don’t mind getting your feet wet you can work your way up the creek.

Great hike.

one waterfall is very low, otherwise great

One of the easiest close to the coast hikes!! Beautiful all around.

Amazing views!

nice little area to wander around. should be really pretty in the Fall. A lot of blackberries and horse poop.

Went here with My Sunflower back in April.
Very nice hike and area. Got great photos of the falls.

Absolutely worth the drive! Very remote, it was wonderful to be alone in the woods with 2 stunning waterfalls. Pack a picnic and enjoy on a Boulder below the falls.

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.

What a fantastic trail! Easy for everyone and so many sights to see from cool bridges and catwalks to waterfalls and swimming holes..... ran out of time stopping so often for fun that we didn’t complete the trail- will have to return again next time we are in town.

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.

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.

Absolutely serene, gorgeous, and amazing. Great trail, lots to see, songbirds, and amazing water sights and sounds.

Loved this hike! Very pretty waterfalls.

My favorite down 138. There's something about these falls that just make me so happy every time I see it. Easy trail. I like to bring a lunch and eat it at the falls.

Nice easy walk. Pleasant to walk among the filbert trees in the heat of the day.

Easy and Fun hike with kids and dogs. Trail follows water most of the time. Beautiful cave/crack in rocks that the kids loved. Easily completed this and Susan Creek Falls before nap time with 2 year old in backpack and 4 year old hiking. Busy during summer and weekends.
