We had three days in Corvallis. Went to Marys Peak the first day and hiked to the top. Loved it so much we went back the last day to hike the Meadow Edge Trail from the Camp Ground to the Peak. We couldn't get over how beautiful the forest and the cloverleaf fields were. Ate a lot of hand-picked berries... More

You can see Mt Hood and many others to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west and of course Corvallis down in the valley...each year the forest service has to replace trail signage due to vandals which is unfortunate...steep uphill gravel road hike to the top (or you can take side routes or longer routes)...definitely take an alternate...

This is a great place to find information about our Federal Forests. There are so many things to do that people don't even think about; hiking, sight-seeing, cutting wood, camping, looking for wild flowers and mushrooms, climbing trees, bird-watching. The Siuslaw National Forest Service office in Corvallis has maps and books and people who can personally give you information about... More

If you have time for only one thing to do in the Corvallis area and it's not raining or the middle of the night, drive and hike to the top of Mary's Peak. It's only 25 miles to the top and on a clear day you can see from Mt. Rainier (250 miles north) to Diamond Peak (150 miles South)... More

There are trails, dirt roads, places to get away from town. There is a lot of poison oak and invasive blackberry too. I prefer to visit in the rain when there are few people in the woods. Find a deer trail and follow it.

Siuslaw forest like all forests is one of a kind. centered along the central Oregon coast you don't have the steeper places like you do in the cascades or farther north but i's cool in the summer and has some wonderful hiden spots to explore.

National forests are for mixed use. And hiking is a wonderful way to appreciate the nature of the area. There are trials for people of mixed abilities.

This is a well maintained National Forest, and that includes the roads. There are lots of opportunities for outdoor activities, including camping, fishing and hunting.

The Siuslaw National Forest covers many thousands of acres and stretches from the ocean inland up into the coastal mountain range. There is far more to it than just Mary's Peak, although that is a popular hiking spot for people from Corvallis. We live on the coast, and like to drive the many gravel roads that go through the SNF.... More

The drive up to Mary's Peak is a must detour anytime one is in the Corvallis area. Off Highway 34, it's about a 9 mile drive (all paved) to the top of the highest peak in the Coast Range. On a nice day, you can see for miles. We went on an interesting day. Leaving Corvallis, it was still dark... More
