Today's walk with members of the Yachats Coastal Gems Volkssport Club is in one of Oregon's most interesting coastal cities. The Old Town will be visited and the Bayfront (complete with barking sea lions), as well as the historic Yacquina Bay Lighthouse and the Yacquina Bay State Park. At low tides, an optional 2 km. (1.2 mile) beach walk is possible.
Carpools will leave the Valley River Inn, 1000 Valley River Way in Eugene, at 7 a.m. and return there about 5 p.m. Each rider pays the driver $10 to help cover car expenses. After the walk, the carpoolers will probably choose a restaurant in Newport to have lunch together; however, lunch arrangements are always optional for each rider/walker.
People traveling to Newport on their own should plan to meet the group at about 9:45 a.m. at the start point, the Hallmark Resort at 744 SW Elizabeth Street in Yachats. Directions to the Hallmark, along with further details on 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". The same information on this and thousands of other Volkswalks and Volksbikes throughout the United States can be obtained by clicking on the "National Events" bar on this page, then "Events" and following the prompts.
