Coos Region...Adventure on Every Trail
Heceta Head and Hobbit Trail Hike
Sunday, March 6, 2016
This hike will provide a few different options, depending on how much difficulty you are prepared for. All options provide great views and interesting woodland vegetation.
(NOTE: Under normal circumstances, these two hikes could have been combined into one, but a bridge over Blowout Creek has been deemed unsafe, and part of the Valley Trail is closed)
For a shorter Hike
Both groups should probably pack a lunch (to enjoy either during or after the hikes), and dress for diverse weather conditions. Walking sticks may be helpful for those taking the long hike.
Location and Time
We will meet at 9:00 at the Fred Meyer parking lot on the North side of Florence. We should gather near the gas station at the north end of the lot. That way we will have an opportunity to consolidate vehicles. There is a day use fee ($5.00) at the Heceta Head parking lot, and while the parking in other locations (the 'turnout' and Washburn SP) is free, the space at the turnout is limited.
If you have an annual parks pass, bring that along.
