Thanks to Kelly Canaday for adding this peak.
Marys Peak (formerly Mary's Peak and sometimes still spelled this way) is a mountain in Benton County, Oregon, United States, just southwest of Philomath. It is the highest peak in the Oregon Coast Range. It is also the highest point in Benton County, and ranks eleventh in the state for prominence.
On a clear day at the top of the peak, facing east, northeast, and southeast, one can see the cities and suburbs of the Willamette Valley, as well as the Cascade Range.
During the wintertime, the part of the road to the peak from Highway 34 is closed. In November 2007, a new gate was added that is one and one-half miles from the top to provide easier access to the summit. The road from Harlan remains open, as there are residences along the way, but the road is not plowed in the winter. Depending on road conditions, however, the mountain may still be reached by way of this road providing one has chains and a 4-wheel-drive vehicle.
