Coos Region...Adventure on Every Trail
Cape Mountain Trails Saturday, July 27
The hike: Beautiful wooded trails and high meadows with views that go on for miles. We have put together a sampler of this wonderful 17 mile trail system that offers lots of options for hikers, mountain bikers and equestrians.
Our long hike will be 7 miles and will combine the Wapati Trail, Nelson Ridge Trail and Tasha trail.
We will lunch in the meadow at the site of an old lookout tower.
Hikers will have the option to shorten their hike to 3 miles by branching off on the Lookout Loop trail.
The short hike will be 3 miles and is rated moderate overall, but you still have to make the climb up to the lookout.
The longer hike is 7 miles and is rated difficult overall.
Dress for the weather and bring plenty of water and something to eat.
Hiking Sticks will make the climbing easier.
