The Yachats Coastal Gems walking group invites people to join them on Tuesday, April 2, in Florence to explore both sides of Honeyman State Park along the shores of Woahink and Cleawox lakes in a beautiful and peaceful park setting.

Dogs are allowed but must be on a six-foot, non-extendable lead to walk with the group, and owners must carry and use appropriate cleanup materials.

The 5K (3.1 miles) walk is rated 1B for fairly level footing on natural trails. The 12K (7.5 miles) walk is rated 2B for those same trails and a couple of easy hills. The distance and speed of walking is tailored to those at the walk that day. Walking sticks and sturdy shoes are recommended.

The Yachats Coastal Gems will meet first at the Sportsman (located at 249 Highway 101 in Florence) at 9:45 a.m., then drive to the start of the walk at 10 a.m. The group shares rides to the walk start and asks that people not leave their vehicle in the Sportsman parking lot during the walk.
