Marys Peak


Marys Peak from Corvallis, Oregon

In 2015, the Siuslaw National Forest will begin a meadow restoration project on Marys Peak. Through carefully planned tree removal, native planting, and other management activities, we are working to restore scenic views and historic meadows.

Marys Peak, at 4,097 feet, is the highest point in Oregon’s Coast Range and the most prominent peak to the west of Corvallis.

On a clear day, from the top of the peak, you can see both the Pacific Ocean to the west and many of the Cascade peaks to the east across the Willamette Valley.

There are also several areas of historical, botanical and geological interest.

When there's snow (not every winter), cross country skiing, snowshoeing and other non-motorized winter recreation are available.

  • Check out Seasonal Information or General Information below for more on winter recreation at Marys Peak.
  • NOTE: The roads to Marys Peak from Highway 34 are not maintained for winter travel. Always watch out for potentially dangerous conditions from heavy rains, slides, falling trees and debris, high winds and heavy snowfall when traveling in the Coast Range. Conditions change quickly. Please check weather before heading out.

Winter Recreation

When there's snow (not every winter), cross country skiing, snowshoeing and other non-motorized winter recreation are available.

Trail Access in Winter

Snow may limit driving access to Meadowedge, Summit, Tie, or East Ridge trailheads. You may be unable to reach these trailheads and trails. North Ridge trail is accessed from Highway 20 which is at a lower elevation and less affected by winter weather.

In all cases, even if you can reach a trailhead, trail access may be limited by snow as you hike farther and higher. Please check conditions before taking off and be prepared for winter weather.

Marys Peak Road in Winter

Starting in winter 2010-11, the Marys Peak Road will remain open through winter. Please use discretion before heading out since the Forest Service does not plow or do any winter road maintenance.

  • Visitors to the area will travel at their own risk and must assess for themselves whether it is safe for their travel.

Two gates, located at 5.5 miles and 7.9 miles, can be used to temporarily close the road if it is impassable due to falling trees, landslides or road damage.

When traveling during the winter season be aware that road conditions vary. Please remember to let someone know where you are going and carry an emergency survival kit at all times.
