Short off the beaten path area that has two waterfalls. The 20-Foot Alsea Falls and 60-Foot Green Peak Falls. The trail is a short loop that goes through both second growth and old growth. That also provides access to 2 awesome waterfalls. If you want to check out Salmon jumping up a waterfall this is the place to see it! Two beautiful waterfalls that gush in the winter and great for swimming in the summer. Alsea Falls Recreation Area is next to the South Fork Alsea River, in a lush coastal forest of red cedars, maples, and Douglas firs. The recreation area has 22 picnic tables, 16 campsites, hiking trails, and an outstanding view of Alsea Falls. Throughout the spring and summer, visitors find blooming rhododendrons, Oregon grapes, dogwoods, and other wildflowers, as well as numerous wild berries. Trails lead to Alsea Falls and other scenic points along the river. Beavers build in the river, and deer and elk graze in the young areas of the forest. Fishing in the river. Across the river the trail continues on to Green Peak Falls. The trail passes through the private campground of McBee Park.

It is definitely more of a family spot. There isn't much of a hike, you basically just arrive and people lay out near the water. We ventured out down the rocks and ended up because a little over two miles out and back but it was super underwhelming. Probably won't return, potentially to camp but that's about it.

Nice short hike, old forest and opportunities for bathing. Read the instructions of where to go to avoid getting lost around the camp ground (e.g. keep right).

Great hike, a bit muddy and some poison oak right along the trail. Green Peak Falls is definitely a must do. Very beautiful falls.
