Mary’s Peak Run
Sat May 20
Nestled in the Heart of the Willamette Valley sits the highest peak in the Oregon Coast Range Marys Peak at 4101 Ft. Mary’s Peak was known as Chateemanwi, or “place of spiritual power” to the native Kalapuya tribe who used the land for spirit quests.
Nestled on her slopes are a town, cemetery, and old logging railroad. The streams that flow down the mountain’s sides provide water to Corvallis from the Rock Creek Watershed. Many of the lands surrounding Marys Peak were privately owned until they were added to the Siuslaw National Forest to protect the source that provides Corvallis with 40% of their drinking water. In addition to the Forest Service, part of the land in the area is managed by the Bureau of Land Management.
