Trail is in great condition and is snow-free all the way to the summit.

This was about a perfect a day that you could wish for to accomplish this hike. Beautiful January weather and the sky was clear at the top so the views were amazing. The hike up the North Ridge Trail was a pretty significant climb but so pretty. We added on the hike up to the summit and then hiked back down to the North Ridge parking area. Such fun!

Gorgeous!

A nice little loop and fun historical information as well.

Great short hike to get your heart beat going! Slippery in some places during the wetter months so make sure to wear shoes with good traction. Partly cloudy the day we went but still good views of Mary’s Peak. Parking was super easy and plentiful. Easily marked, unlike some Oregon trails!

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

Upper loop has great views, bottom loop goes through a pretty prairie. The historical markers are dated but readable.

No snow until after the parking lot to the summit, maybe a couple inches

Small amount of sleet after the 1 mile mark. Near the top, covered in snow/ice. I recommend snow shoes for the final .5 to the summit.

Super peaceful as there wasn't anyone there. Well maintained trails and gorgeous views!

Great hike on way to coast - perfect for taking dog out to wear them out while enjoying nice views

I really like the Beazell Forest... this time of the year, everything is just dripping with green moss! I started out on the steep trail going up to the meadow, then turn RT and following the trail back through the woods to Plunkett Creek, and then back to the barn.

Perfect, quiet hike. Add another mile or so to summit Mary's Peak. It was a cloudy, damp day and I only ran into 3 other groups on the trail. Lots of old trees, mushrooms, ferns. Smells wonderful. It's a solid uphill hike. I'm in shape and I felt it the next morning.

Absolutely loved it. There was no one up there today which made for a peaceful hike.

On a logging road, so it doesn't seem like much of an adventure. The only time you can see the creek is at the very beginning, and you can't really get near it. It was fun for berry picking. When you get to the top there isn't any view worth seeing because of the trees.

Heavily trafficked when we went, very windy up top, magical views of the Cascades and Coastal range on a clear day.

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.

There are many trails at Mary's peak w/varying difficulty.

Beautiful trail. Lots of clovers, ferns and down trees.

Nice hike, it gets pretty tight and overgrown on the accent to the summit and the view point. We parked by the barn, but followed the map to the next driveway down and started there, but it was unnecessary, and behind the barn has the info centers and the trail head. It was a nice loop, took us about 1 hour 30 minutes to complete.
