Newport - Historic Year Round Walk
5 km. (3.1 miles) or 10 km. (6.2 miles), both rated easy.
These walks explore different areas of this busy seaport. These include Nye Beach, Old Town, Bayfront, Yaquina Bay Lighthouse and Yaquina Bay State Park. A beach option is available at low tide. We will join with members of the Yachats Coastal Gems Volkssport Club on this walk.
There will not be a planned carpool to Newport. Interested walkers may contact our club president, Sally Ross, at 541-726-7169 or 541-547-3949 for transportation possibilities.
The walk starts at the Hallmark Resort, 744 SW Elizabeth Street in Newport, at 9:45 a.m. and will probably finish about 12:15 p.m. Directions to the Resort, along with further details of this walk, can be found by clicking on the "Other Oregon Events" bar at the top left of this page, then "Year Round Events" and scrolling down to "Newport - Historic".
