Newport Year Round Walk
5 km. (3.1 miles) or 10 km. (6.2 miles), both rated easy. Optional 2 km. (2.4 mile) beach walk at low tide.
New this year, a revised route visits Nye Beach, Old Town, the Bayfront, historic lighthouse and Yaquina Bay State Park. The optional 2 km. is on a wide stretch of beach with a very gradual slope. We will be joined by members of the Yachats Coastal Gems Volkssport Club.
We will not carpool to this walk, except as arranged individually. Call our president, Sally Ross, at 541-726-7169 or 541-547-3949 to inquire about sharing a ride. The start time in Newport is 9:45 a.m.; meet at the Hallmark Resort, 744 SW Elizabeth Street in Newport.
