Cummins Creek Trail

November 18, 1990

Fifteen hardy hikers ignored the dark rain clouds of the Willamette Valley to travel to the Oregon Coast for a day of sun, cool breezes and the fresh ocean air. Cummins Creek Trail originates at the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center and begins with a gentle uphill climb through deep, lush forest, then into old-growth Sitka spruce. Sun came through the trees to warm us as we stopped for lunch above Rock Creek, then on to complete the loop. En route it took seven hikers holding hands with outstretched arms to encircle one of the grand old giants. There was time after the hike for a stroll along the ocean side trail, exploration of Devil’s Churn and then a stop for giant ice cream cones at BJ’s in Florence. Hikers who enjoyed the sun, the sea and scenery were Karen Andershort, Susan Baker, Mari Baldwin, Diana Cantwell, Kevin Clark, Emmy Dale, Bob Dark, Ben Elkus, Jack Engstrom, Sylvia Harvey, Corrine Hunt, Jim Lindberg, Gary Marx, Hans Schock and Doris Allen (leader).
