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.

Great hike but a lot of people which is why it isn't 5 stars. It's pretty steep but only for 2.5 miles so I would say it is moderate.
We would definitely come again.

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