Cape Perpetua's popular “Walk with a Ranger” series will return this Monday, May 27, with retired chief park ranger Michael Noack leading hikes along easy-to-moderate trails at noon every Monday throughout the summer.
“This is a great opportunity for people to connect with nature, while sharing the experience with others,” Noack said.
During the 75-to-90-minute hikes, Noack will share information about the local flora and fauna, while participants will have the opportunity to get to know one another and make new hiking friends. Hikes will depart from the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center, located three miles south of Yachats on Highway 101.
Participants should dress for variable coastal weather, wear comfortable shoes and bring water.
Attending the hikes is free, but a day-use fee or recreation pass is required within the Cape Perpetua Scenic Area. For more information, call visitor center staff at 541-547-3289.
