Yachats Gerdemann Garden year round walk
10 km. (6.2 miles) rated easy.
We join members of the Yachts Coastal Gems Volkssport Club on this pleasant walk through Gerdeman Gardens (no dogs allowed), followed by a stretch of the 804 Trail, and finish by the shops downtown in picturesque oceanfront Yachats. We'll have splendid ocean views and refreshing sea air.
Carpools leave the lobby of the Valley River Inn, 1000 Valley River Way in Eugene, at 7 a.m. and return there about 3:30 p.m. Each rider pays the driver $5 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.
People traveling to Yachats on their own should plan to meet the group between 9 and 9:15 a.m. at the start point, the Overleaf Lodge at 280 Overleaf Lodge Lane north of Yachats (on the ocean side of Hwy. 101). Explicit directions to the Overleaf, and 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 "Yachats - Gerdeman Gardens". Alternately, 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.
