Green Peak Falls, Oregon is a gem hidden by the more popular Alsea Falls.
Finding Green Peak Falls Trail.
Start by parking at Alsea Falls and cross the river on the bridge. From there, head downstream on the well-marked and fairly highly traveled foot trail. The trail winds along the high bank of the river and is good for all levels of hiker. It is dog and kid-friendly and easy to follow.
The trail opens up to Hubert K. McBee Memorial Park. At this point, look for the trail on your right, at the end of a turn around. The sign may be missing or laying down but the trail follows a stream that feeds into the river at the intersection of the trail and the park.
Unlock the secrets of Green Peak Falls
Once you find the trail, it is well established and easy to walk. It climbs up above the stream until it reaches a staircase that brings you back down to the water at the base of the falls. When you look from the stream to the falls, you will see a steep embankment with a rope attached to a tree at the top. I recommend taking the time to explore! Use the rope to climb the incline adjacent to the falls. The trail ends quickly once you get to the top but the view is worth it!
I recommend being prepared for the usual Oregon weather but also being preparred to a picnic or dip in the creek. I imagine that this secret swimming hole is well attended during the dry summer months. There are plenty of tree stumps, roots, and rocks that are perfect for sitting. The rope climbing wall offers hours of entertainment for kids and adults looking for an extra workout. Green Peak Falls offers more than just a view of a waterfall. I hope you enjoy it!
