I had dropped my sister off to camp here and had always wanted to come back. The park is closed during winter but you can park near the gate with no problem. The trail heading toward Alsea falls was short and easy. The leg down through the campground had a few trees down across it but no problem to get over. Overall it was a great short hike.

When we started this trail, we talked to a couple different groups who could not find the green peak falls. When you have the alsea river on your left, it stays on the left so when you get to the lower campgroung there is a creek that comes in from your right take the trail that follows this stream and you will come to the falls. It is marked but you have to be looking for the markers. It is always fun to get out where the air is cleaner, but there is not a lot to see on these trails except the two falls wich do make it worth the short hike.
