Three Mile Lake

April 25, 1976

A baker’s dozen, we left in three cars at 9:00 a.m., stopped briefly at Linslaw County Park, arrived at Tahkenitch Lake campground at 11:00 a.m. and started out the trail by 11:20 or so. After a welcome rest about halfway we saw the lake at 1 p.m. Some members preferred to stay on top of the dune, the others enjoyed their lunch and a nap in the sun right beside the lake. Leaving again at 2 p.m. we got back to the cars at 3:30. The McCornacks and their two grandsons left us for Florence while the rest of the party returned via the North Umpqua highway, stopping in Drain for pies ala mode (70 for generous portions) and coffee or tea. We arrived back at the parking lot at 6:15 p.m.

The weather was beautiful at the coast (it rained in Eugene); there’s a fairly new outdoor toilet as well as separate parking for about five cars at the trail head; dune buggies had ripped up many of the dunes clear up to the lake, suggesting that perhaps the dunes between Tahkenitch Lake campground and Three Mile lake should be closed to all vehicular traffic at all times. Litter (including shot-up bottles and empty shells) gives sad testimony to the type of people misusing the beach.

Participants were, Sloan Bertsch, Tod Brewer (the McCornack’s grandchildren), Jan Gallenstein, Gladys Grancorvitz, Denise Kalakay, Herbert and Evelyn McCornack, Elizabeth McMullen, Jan Middleswart, Teresa R. Nutt, Dorothy Turner, Merle Traudt, and Hank Plant, the leader.
