Hike the highest point in the Coast Range with wonderful views and old forest. This is a nice loop hike to the summit of Mary's Peak which provides some interesting views besides just taking the east ridge trail out and back from the summit. From the parking lot take the trail that parallels the road for about 100 yards and comes out where the paved, gravel, and East Ridge Trailhead sign meets. Take the trail which gives you great views of the forest as you climb a sustained gradual climb to the junction with the Tie Trail (there will be a bench there). Take the Tie Trail up to the North Ridge Trail. Proceed down the North Ridge Trail and come out at the Mary's Peak parking lot. This is the end of the hike, but you can take the 1.5 mile round trip to the summit.

A few significant trees down through the trail right now. A little scrambling and you can get around them though.

I started the hike at Connor's camp and I thought the hike was beautiful the whole way. It's not steep and the trail has been maintain really well. I would rate this hike as easy.

My dog and I had a great time hiking this trail on a sunny afternoon. It took us about an hour to summit and 40min to descend. Met very few people on the way. Quiet and peaceful. Somewhat challenging.

Really liked this hike. The smoke haze started drifting in while we were hiking, but even with that killing the views it was a nice hike. We did not encounter that many people on the hike, just a few here and there. There is a nice side trail from the road to the top that is incredibly steep, a nice little challenge for the legs!

Awesome hike, I had it @ 5.75 miles though, some rocky spots but otherwise nicely maintained, pretty peaceful except for @ the very top
