Marys Peak Day Use

Area Status: Open

Wildflowers in open meadow at Marys Peak

Perched near the summit of the highest peak in the Oregon Coast Range, Marys Peak Day Use Area offers excellent views of the Cascade Mountains, the Willamette Valley and even the Pacific Ocean on clear days. Mt. Hood, Mt. Jefferson and Mt. Saint Helens are only a few of the peaks that you may be able to observe. Wildflower displays abound in the open meadows from late spring through the summer months.

Three trails lead from the Day Use Area: North Ridge Trail, Summit Trail, and Tie Trail. When there's snow, cross country skiing, snowshoeing and other non-motorized winter recreation are available, although the road is not maintained for winter travel and caution is advised.

In 2015, the Siuslaw National Forest began 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.
