The walk in this picturesque small town follows the edge of the Yaquina River, goes through the historic downtown, then climbs a moderate hill to view the town and river from the ridge. Features of the walk include the large Georgia-Pacific mill, which runs around the clock, the riverfront park, and a historic railroad museum. We will join members of the Yachats Coastal Gems Volkssport Club on this walk.
