5 km. (3.1 miles) or 10 km. (6.2 miles), both rated moderately easy.
The walk includes a beautiful stretch of the Yaquina River east of Newport. A community park, a small boat marina and a small railroad museum are located here. East of the interesting downtown is the large Georgia Pacific Mill; the walk then goes uphill a bit through residential areas with splendid views. We join members of the Yachats Coastal Gems Volkssport Club for this walk.
The walk begins at 9:45 a.m. at the JC Thriftway Market, 336 NE US 20-Bus. in Toledo.
