The Yachats Coastal Gems walking group will head to Toledo on Tuesday, May 7, to tackle the Ridge and River route, going up a bit and down a lot to explore most of this old lumber town.
The route is broken into three sections and takes advantage of the gentler slopes with only one seriously steep hill. There is even a section with almost no incline.
Walkers can tackle the whole six miles or a shorter section if they choose. Walking sticks and sturdy shoes are recommended.
Dogs are allowed, but owners must bring a six-foot non-extendable lead and appropriate cleanup materials.
The group will meet inside the J.C. Market at 336 NE Highway 20 at at 9:45 am for registration, then drive to the walk start at 10 am. Please use street parking when possible.
