Depoe Bay year round walk
10 km. (6.2 miles), rated moderately easy.
This walk consists of three loops, which provide oceanfront views, a new forested trail, and the world's smallest harbor (complete with Coast Guard Station). Also, some interesting vacation homes. The views and the breezes are refreshing.
Carpools will leave the Valley River Inn, 1000 Valley River Way in Eugene, at 7:15 a.m. and return there about 5 p.m. Each rider pays the driver $10 to help cover car expenses. Following the walk, the carpoolers will probably choose a restaurant along the coast to have lunch together; however, lunch arrangements are always optional for each rider/walker.
Persons traveling to Depoe Bay on their own should plan to meet the group at about 10:15 a.m. at the start point, Gracie's Sea Hag Restaurant, 58 North Hwy. 101 in Depoe Bay.
