Beverly Beach year round walk
5 km. (3.1 miles) or 10 km. (6.2 miles), both rated moderately easy.
Today's walk, with members of the Yachats Coastal Gems Volkssport Club, will go through the State Park on paved and woodland trails, then on the beach and up a staircase to Otter Rock. The walk offers great ocean views and the possibility of whale watching.
Carpools will leave the lobby of 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. Following the walk, the carpoolers will probably choose a restaurant in Yachats or Florence to have lunch together; however, lunch arrangements are always optional for each rider/walker.
Persons traveling to this walk on their own should plan to meet the carpoolers at about 9:45 a.m. at the registration point, the Hallmark Resort at 744 SW Elizabeth Street in Newport. Beverly Beach is then about 10 miles north of the Hallmark Resort.
