Bandon Historical Hike--Sunday August 6

 

Join archaeologist and historian, Reg Pullen for a  4 mile walking tour of Bandon.  Reg  will share all the local lore and colorful history of Bandon while touring various historical points of interest.

 

 The total hike is 4 miles, rated moderate, with some sand walking involved and should last 2.5 to 3 hours.

 

The first part of the walk will take place in “Old Town Bandon” and if you aren’t up for the longer beach walk you can end your walk there.

 

Dress appropriately for the weather.  A windbreaker with a hood is recommended for the beach section.  Walking sticks might be helpful for the beginning of the beach walk.  Bring water.  You might want to pack a lunch to eat on the Bandon Boardwalk, or you might want to plan to eat at one of Bandon's many fine lunch spots.

 

After the hike you may want to visit the Bandon Historical Society Museum.
