Gwynn Creek Loop
May 23, 1998
Participants for this hike met at Cape Perpetua Visitor Center, and all arrived on time — amazing!
It was a great group and a perfect day for hiking this lovely loop starting on the north side of
the ridge, returning on the south side, crossing the many little streams and marveling at the
great old growth, the flowers, the scents, the solitude and the sound from Gwynn Creek.
We did encounter a very large social/hiking group from Eugene on our return trip hiking the
The beach by Gwynn Creek (unnamed State Park) was an extra special treat as the sand had returned
and this stretch on the coast is uncommonly beautiful and was thoroughly enjoyed
by Susan Baker, Max Brown, Mary Ann Hastings, Chuck Mitchell, Clare Tucker, Sheila Ward
and Birgitte B. Williams, leader.
