Newport - Historic Year Round Walk
5 km. (3.1 miles) or 10 km. (6.2 miles), both rated moderately easy.
These routes go through many interesting areas of this vibrant seaport, including Nye Beach, Old Town, the bayfront, Yaquina Bay Lighthouse and State Park. An additional 2 km. (1.2 mile) beach option is available during lower tides and dry weather. We will join members of the Yachats Coastal Gems Volkssport Club on this walk.
There will not be an organized Mossbacks carpool to this walk. Interested walkers needing transportation can contact our club president, Sally Ross, at 541-726-7169 or 541-547-3949 for possible ride sharing. The walk begins at the Hallmark Resort, 744 SW Elizabeth Street in Newport, at 9:45 a.m.
