The Yachats Coastal Gems walking group invites people to join them on Tuesday, Feb. 5, in Depoe Bay.

Depoe Bay is noted for whale watching and the World's Smallest Harbor. The walk consists of three loops that take in the harbor and two seaside residential areas with views of the sea and the hazardous entry to the harbor. There is a pedestrian underpass that offers an up-close view of boats attempting to reach the harbor safely.

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

The three and six-mile walks have varied walking surfaces, including forested trail and a few mild hills. The group is happy to walk at anyone’s pace and leaves no walker behind. Walking sticks and sturdy shoes recommended.

Those wanting to take part should met inside Gracie’s Sea Hag, 58 N Highway 101, Depoe Bay, at 9:45 a.m. for registration, then start the walk at 10 a.m. Off-street public parking is suggested.
