Yaquina Head

The Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area includes 5 short trails, a visitor center, and a lighthouse.  We'll do all of them, conditions permitting.  Overall elevation gain is modest, but there are stairs both indoors and outdoors.  Bring a snack and lunch, although if it's not pleasant weather for picnicking, we may opt to buy lunch indoors on the way home.   I'll be making reservations for the lighthouse tour, so please sign up on or before Feb. 14.  After that you can check with me to see if there have been late cancellations. No texts please.
