Getting There

Short hike from summit parking lot to top of Marys Peak great views From the parking lot follow the main trail/road (to the east of the parking lot) up to the summit of Marys Peak. This is a well maintained gravel trail and there are several single-trak trails (like the Summit Loop Trail) that branch off. There is a significant elevation gain, but it is not long. Only the very old or very young might have difficulty. A wheel chair could be pushed up it, but it would be difficult because of the angle near the top. One of the best times to visit is the month of May when all the flowers are out.

From I-5 take the Corvallis, Oregon exit and follow HWY 20/34 to and through Corvallis following signs to Philomath/Coast. After you pass through Philomath, the HWY will split with HWY 20 heading to Newport (right) and left HWY 34 to Waldport. Follow HWY 34 as if going to Waldport. Follow for approx 9 miles and look for the Marys Peak road on your right. Drive on this paved road (open April to October) to the summit parking lot (cost if $5 if you don't have a yearly parking pass). This is the start of your hike.

Super easy, stroller accessible trail. Went one week ago and the wild flowers were still in bloom. On a clear day you can see from Sisters to Newport!

There is a large fallen tree that blocks the trail at approx 1.3 miles from the trailhead. It is little bother for tall or younger hikers but is a bit of an issue for all others to either go over or around. The short, steep Summit Connector trail is now closed (restoration of the area). The trail is otherwise in very good shape and a comfortable moderate grade. We had beautiful weather with 68F high and a light breeze (so much better than our usual cool/cold temps and cold coastal wind).

Easy. Great when you want to hike but are worn out from other hikes. Wildflowers are incredible May and June. Go on a foggy day and enjoy some amazing atmosphere.

Mary’s Peak is the high point of Benton County, Oregon. There are several trail heads to Mary’s Peak so you can customize your distance and vertical gain for your ascent. On this warm day in July walking with the dog we drove to the highest parking area (forest service fee) and did an approximately 2-mile loop trail. There are meadows with wildflowers at the exposed summit. On a clear day, you are treated to views from the Cascade Mountain Range in the east, and over the tops of the Coastal Range to the Pacific Ocean to the west.

A truly beautiful place, but this trail is more of a walk with a big hill at the end.

Great views from the parking lot before the hike. I wouldn't rate this as a hard hike, it's short and not all that steep. Many other trails to explore in addition to the main summit trail.

I will do this one again in daylight sometime instead of midnight so I can see the views it's famous for. I will say it's pretty steep, and slow going in March when the ground has anywhere from 2-12 inches of snow on it. Also very windy so maybe don't go when it is sleeting out unless you're in need of a serious exfoliation. What can I say, Ingress is a strange game

Everything I've read says this is a difficult trail, and while it is uphill that is the most difficult part about it. I hiked this with a friend and our dogs on a cloudy somewhat rainy day and it was still beautiful with the fog and rain. Because of the fog there was no spectacular view from the top, but it was well worth it. Thin trails though. Soon I'll do the whole trail.

This was an amazing hike, with amazing views. Marys Peak is the highest point on the Oregon Coastal range, but the hike from the upper trail head is easy. We could see 10 mountains from the top, and the rolling coastal hills and mountains were amazing. You have views of the Willamette Valley (Corvallis) to the East and the Pacific Ocean to the West. If you want an amazing view and and easy hike, this is the place to go! Lots of wildflowers, though not very much wildlife.

Went up this trail last Sunday! It is 2.5 miles each way from Coopers Camp and we were hiking through the clouds the entire hike! I hear there is a great view but we were in clouds. At the peak we were in blustery winds with no view to be had, but the hike up to the peak was still lovely and the hike back down was nice. This is a great place to see the reforestation projects and find animal trails and tracks.
