We'll join members of the Yachats Coastal Gems Volkssport Club to walk this interesting trail through a small but busy town on the Yaquina River. The route goes through a thriving downtown and up shortly into the hills overlooking the river, then down to a riverfront park. Along the way, you'll pass an interesting railroad museum and get a glimpse of the 24-hour-a-day Georgia Pacific Mill.
There will not be a carpool for this walk; either go on your own or call our president, Sally Ross, at 541-726-7169 for possible ride-sharing. The walk starts at 9:45 a.m. at the J. C. Thriftway Market at 336 NE US-20 Business in Toledo.
