Heceta Head/Hobbit Trail

October 28, 2006

Six hikers met the leader at Muriel Ponsler Wayside to start this popular coastal hike. The sun was shining and the tide was out as we started walking south on the beach, on this beautiful windless morning. A heron stayed just ahead of us as we walked along. We went up the Hobbit Trail, from the beach and then continued to the lighthouse for the WOW views. Upon reaching the lighthouse some of the group took the short lighthouse tour and the rest ate lunch and basked in the sun. After lunch we returned to the trail, crossed the highway and went along the China Creek trail through the camp ground to return to our cars. Our trip was completed by about 2 o’clock. This was a first time on this trip for some of the group and we even had someone who had just moved to Eugene from the south. The group had several opportunities for photo taking. This trip never disappoints even if it is foggy or even drizzly.

Hikers were members: Jennifer Barnes, Daniele Delaby, Sandra Larsen (leader), John Lee and Margaret Prentice; and nonmembers: Keith Christensen, Nathan Thompson and Bill Ward.
