Marys Peak is the highest point in the Coast Range Mountains
at 4097 feet. It is located in the Siuslaw National Forest
south of Highway 20
, connecting Newport
According to "Oregon Geographic Names," the Indian name was "Chintimini." At later dates, it was also called Mouse Mountain, before the name Marys Peak became established by connection with Marys River, which runs north of the mountain.
Although there are higher peaks in Oregon mountains along the coast, they are south of the Coquille River and are actually part of the Siskiyou Mountain Range.
