Toledo - Ridge and River Year Round Walk
5 km. (3.1 miles) or 10 km. (6.2 miles), both rated moderately easy.
We'll meet with members of the Yachats Coastal Gems Volkssport Club to do this walk along the edge of the Yaquina River and in the hills above the downtown area. Some short climbs are involved. The busy around-the-clock Georgia-Pacific Mill is impressive, as is the museum of the Yaquina-Pacific Railroad and its Engine #1. The downtown is nice and the town's forested setting very pleasant.
The Mossbacks will not sponsor a club carpool to this walk; interested walkers are encouraged to arrange their own transportation to reach Toledo by 10 a.m. We'll meet at 10 a.m. at the start point, the J. C. Thriftway Market at 336 NE Hwy. US-20 Business in Toledo.
