Hug Point in Arch Cape.

CANNON BEACH — Angora Hiking Club will visit Hug Point with geologist Tom Horning, starting at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday.

Horning will lead the hike. Participants will visit Angora Peak sandstone, part of the 15 million-year-old estuary of the Miocene Columbia River. Hands-on examination of “explosive submarine deposits where lavas burst onto the ancient sea floor,” and information about the area’s history will be other features of the visit.

Club member Arline LaMear won the hike experience in a Clatsop Community College Foundation auction and decided to share the experience with the club.

To participate, meet at the Hug Point parking lot by 8:20 a.m. Bring a mask, lunch and water. Participants don’t need to be members of Angora Hiking Club but should register by contacting LaMear at 503-338-6883 or
