Alsea Falls Trail

Length: 0.74 miles  |  Elevation Gain: 72.5 feet  |  

Beautiful waterfalls characterize the Alsea Falls Recreation area. Visitors can hike or mountain bike on many miles of trails through second growth forests. The site also features a picnic area and campground (fees apply).

Constructed by the CCC, the short Alsea Falls Trail follows the south bank of the Alsea River from the campground to the waterfalls. The trail can also be accessed from the Alsea Falls recreation area, in which case the hike to the falls is less than 0.1 mile. When the recreation area is closed in winter, the easiest access to the falls is from a highway pullout just west of the rec area turnoff. From here a short trail connects to the Alsea Falls Trail at the head of the falls, and a short switchback leads to the base. Use caution as the smooth rocks below the falls are extremely slick!
