From Siuslaw National Forest HQ
Due to equipment issues, Marys Peak from Highway 34 to Connor’s Camp will be closed August 2 and 3 to complete road resurfacing work that began July 26. Today, July 27, Marys Peak will open to the public at noon.
“This closure is the final stage of last year’s road work and bank stabilization contract,” said Joe Acosta, Siuslaw National Forest Roads Engineer. “It is closed to facilitate a surface treatment application.”
Marys Peak is the highest mountain in the Coast Range, at 4,097 feet. Visitors wanting to access the top of the Peak can get there from Highway 20 at Burnt Woods and through the community of Harlan on county roads 547 and 618, eventually connecting with forest road 30 to Connor’s Camp. Not all of these roads are paved.
“We regret any inconvenience this may have for forest visitors, however putting on a final seal coating will improve everyone’s driving experience,” add Acosta.
