Bandon Dunes Hike

Saturday, March 4, 2017

 

 

Bandon Dunes is more than just a world class golf resort.  There are more than six miles of trails on the resort grounds.  We will explore those trails.

 

Long Hike: 6 mile scenic loop trail with woodlands, dunes, wetlands, a labyrinth (pictured below) and possibly a side trip to the beach at Bandon Dunes Resort.  Rated moderate.

 

Short Hike:  There are several opportunities to shorten the walk and return to the starting point.

 

You can end the trip at the Trails End Grill where you can eat your sack lunch or order from the menu.  There is a pavilion with a gas fireplace to warm you if there is a March chill in the air.
