Hikers on Marys Peak

Difficulty: Difficult
Distance: 5 to 6 miles round trip
Elevation Gain: 2500 feet
Leader: Chandra LeGue (Oregon Wild’s Senior Conservation Advocate)
Location: Siulsaw National Forest, southwest of Corvallis

Mary’s Peak’s characteristic hump defines the Coast Range between Eugene and Salem and offers great hiking opportunities. This hike is also a great opportunity to learn about forest policy and how it can protect (or not) public lands like Marys Peak. On this hike, we’ll take the East Ridge Trail from Connor’s Camp to the summit of the mountain and pass through gorgeous old forests along the way. On a clear day, you’ll be able to see the Pacific Ocean to the west and many of the Cascade peaks to the east. We’ll return on the Tie Trail for a nice loop.

Carpools will be available from Eugene and Corvallis.

The goal of Oregon Wild’s outdoor program is to connect our supporters to the places we work to protect and conserve. Our guided hikes and outings are led by staff members with experience in our conservation campaigns, knowledge about the natural world, and a passion for Oregon’s wild places and wildlife. Our programs offer an educational experience and a connection to advocacy for the places we visit. We strive to make our outdoor programs inviting and safe for everyone.

Your hike leader will get you additional information with specifics about a meeting time and location, difficulty level, and any other details about your hike after you register.
