Alsea, Oregon Map

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.

nice easy hike. fun for the whole family

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.

This is the best. After just under 6 miles up a paved road your in for the time of your life! Loads of fun.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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!

Read Shawna Jepson's review! Cute area, easy hike. My 2 yr old did most of it with help in some spots.

Nice trail but slippery at the actual falls! Google maps is not correct! But once we found the parking lot the trail was pretty and the falls were fun to take pictures by!

Fun and easy. Good for families.

Didn't really enjoy this hike as much as others. The trail markers are hard to follow and i wasn't able to get to the second Falls. I am directionally challenged so I am sure a reasonable person could find it but I didn't want to get more lost then I was already. Beautiful hike in what I did experience though.

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).

easy enough to take 2yr old on :) he had fun

Great hike. Better trail signage needed from main parking lot from Alsea Falls to Green Peak Falls. But very beautiful. Trails very clean.

Beautiful falls and a lovely trail

Great hike beautiful waterfalls and scenery

very scenic and not a lot of traffic midweek

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

perfect hike for the family.....took both kids and they made it all the way

trail running

If you're using Google Maps, it takes you to the right area--disregard after it tells you to turn left off the cliff onto Glenbrook Rd, (which you pass and is a driveway, not a road) continue a mile or two. Alsea Falls is a few miles passed the mountain bike area (left side) 1000 feet to the right. You literally park and walk 50 feet and you're there. However, walk across the bridge, turn left follow the trail to Green Peak Falls. There are no signs so make note: the trail turns into a gravel road at a decline (3/4 mile into hike). To the left and over the bridge-thing there's a parking lot. Don't go that way! Follow the path around a bend to the right. There's a sign, which you can't read until you're standing next to it, propped against the bottom of a tree. The trail to Green Peaks starts there. Quick hike, gorgeous, and ropes tied to the trees near the Falls of you want to climb up to the top (maybe 20 ft.).

Brought the dog, everyone was friendly. Multiple dogs off leash--mine was for a lot of the run.

Also, if you do turn left and go over the bridge, there's a road across the street (to the right a bit) which takes you on a nice hike, no falls, just peace and quiet!!
