Winter Weather and the wind make for some very cool looking sand sculptures geologist refer to as “Yardangs”. You can take a 3 mile moderate to difficult trip up onto the dunes between Hall Lake and the ocean at a slow pace to enjoy the sandy artwork. We are talking slow and steady – easy does it. Hiking sticks make this a much more enjoyable trip. This trip should last about 2-2.5 hours.
If there is interest, and a leader, you can head on out toward the beach and return to Hall Lake for a 6 – 7 mile round trip. Rated difficult. The route may vary, depending on conditions.
Walking sticks and sturdy shoes will help make the walk more enjoyable for you.
Dress for the weather, bring water, and pack a lunch if you plan on the longer hike.
Both hikes leave from the Hall Lake Day use area at 10:00 on Saturday, January 21.
Driving Directions: Hall Lake is about 10 miles south of Reedsport and 17 miles north of Coos Bay on the west side of hwy. Take Hwy 101 to Wildwood Drive (opposite Tugman State Park entrance) and turn left into day-use area at Hall Lake.
