Peak Creek skips down a mossy wall into a small pool framed by tall maple trees. Though previously accessible by a rough and steep bushwhack, there is now a pleasant trail leading to the falls from the campground in Hubert K. McBee Memorial Park. The trail winds along and above Peak Creek to the base of the falls. The book "A Waterfall Lover's guide to the Pacific Northwest" by Gregory Plumb describes the steep bushwhack previously necessary to reach the falls. I highly recommend you NOT try the route in this book. It is extremely steep and dangerous and very unstable. During high water periods, it may be more difficult to get full views of the falls (without getting wet).
- Green Peak Falls is the Official name of this waterfall.
There are two easy ways to reach this site. One, From Corvallis, take SR 34 west to the small berg of Alsea, and turn south at the signs for Alsea Falls. In one mile, turn left onto South Fork Road, and follow this route for 8 miles (some of which is gravel) to Hubert K. McBee Memorial Park. Turn into the campground, cross the Alsea River and park in the signed Green Peak Falls parking area. The second, from Junction City (just northwest of Eugene), follow SR 99W north to Monroe, and turn west onto Alpine Road (signed for Alsea Falls and the Benton County Tour Route), and follow the signs to Alsea Falls in about 13 miles, and continue another .6 miles beyond to the entrance to Hubert K. McBee Memorial Park. From the parking lot, the trail winds an easy 1/2 mile to the base of the falls.
