Alsea & Green Peak Falls
May 17, 2003
Easy spring hike along the Alsea River with an elevation gain
of approximately 400 ft.
Margaret Wiese counted 32 varieties of blooming wildflowers. Temperatures fluctuated some with dramatic weather shifting from
black clouds plus rain, to bright sunlight and then a hail storm.
Alsea Falls is accessible from a campground but we hiked to it
via a trail constructed by an Eagle Scout.
In the same area is Green Peak Falls which is the more spectacular
of the two falls.
