Visit the Bogs…and More

Join us for an in-town hike on the wilder side of Bandon. Follow sidewalks, quiet streets and pathways on a 2.5-mile loop that leads from the Bandon History Museum to a good vantage point to see some cranberry bogs during harvest season. Museum volunteer Jim Proehl will share some “History Minutes” along the way. Expect a sojourn in a cemetery as part of this October hike. Extend the walk by picking up one of several “Healthy, Historic Hike” maps at the museum and following another route through historic Bandon. Scroll down to find out about another Bandon event that you might be interested in attending.

Park in the museum parking lot and if that fills up, park in the public lot at Face Rock Creamery or on adjacent streets.

You’ll visit the site of this History Minute:
