Tell them (where) to take a hike

Local hiking options include the Gerdemann Botanical Garden in Yachats

Adventures on the Oregon Coast, throughout the state and even abroad will be on the agenda when the Newport 60+ Activity Center ponders its 2019 lineup of trips and hikes on Tuesday, Aug. 21.

From 1 to 2 pm, the center is inviting adventurous souls to enjoy root beer floats and toss around ideas for new places to experience and explore.

Options for local hikes include places like the Depoe Bay Nature Trail, South Beach South Jetty Trail and wonderful trails in and around Yachats. Other choices include hikes in and around Corvallis, like Mary’s Peak, Alsea Falls, Trail of Ten Falls in Silver Falls State Park or wildlife hiking at Finley Wildlife Preserve.

And those interested in traveling farther afield should drop by the center from 2 to 3 pm on Monday, Sept. 24, when Laura Hernandez with Collette Travel will give a presentation about two trips abroad: Canadian Rockies by Train in June 2019, and Rome and the Amalfi Coast Tour in October 2019.

The Newport 60+ Activity Center is located at 20 SE 2nd Street.
