New River is Great in the Spring

Guide yourself to enjoy the diversity.

There isn’t a scheduled guided hike, but New River has a lot to offer at this time of year, so you don’t want to miss it. It’s easy to guide yourself with the maps available at the parking lot.

We’ll have a good supply of huckleberries come Fall
Directions: From Bandon or Coos Bay, travel south on Hwy. 101 to Croft Lake Lane, 11 miles south of Bandon. Turn right on Croft Lake Lane, and follow to the New River ACEC Nature Center.

Will You Resolve to Get More Exercise in 2022?

Coos Odyssey is a perfect way to keep track of your exercise achievements in the new year. You can follow your progress on a virtual map as you log miles based on your activities. For example:

  • Log a mile for every mile hiked
  • Log a mile for 30 minutes of Yoga
  • Log a mile for 30 minutes of gardening (as long as you keep working)
  • Two laps around Mingus Park earns 1.2 miles
  • Sunset Bay to Cape Arago and back earns 8.5 miles
  • A 60 minute paddle on Eel Lake earns 2 miles
  • …and so on

There is a ‘Team’ for South Coast Striders. Choose that team when you sign up (or, if you want, create your own team made up of colleagues, friends, or families).
