Coastal Gems to gather June 4

The Yachats Coastal Gems walking group invites people to join them on Tuesday, June 4, for a historic walk around Newport.

Organizers say this walk has something for everyone: seascapes, bayfront boardwalk, shopping and eating, a lighthouse, boat watching, old town, and, for those ocean aficionados when the tides are right, a walk on the beach. Footing is easy on mostly paved surfaces, and on the 10K, several short steep hills. People can walk the entire six miles or whichever section or sections suit their needs and enjoyment.

   Dogs are allowed but must be on a 6-foot, non-extendable lead, and owners must carry and use appropriate cleanup materials.

The distance and speed of walking is tailored to those at the walk that day. Walking sticks and sturdy shoes are recommended. All walkers are welcome.

The group will meet at 9:45 p.m. inside the Hallmark Resort, located at 744 SW Elizabeth S.t, Newport. The walk will start at 10 a.m.

RSVPs are appreciated. Call or text Maryann at 541-961-4279 or email [email protected].
