December 15 – Tahkenitch Dunes: Moderate 7-9 miles – Come explore the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area at Tahkenitch Dunes, north of Reedsport. This hike is a dune ecosystem tour-de-force as we will climb hills, amble through a mossy forest, stroll on the beach, and maybe cross a large creek twice. This hike will be approximately 9 miles and will involve two creek wades, conditions permitting. If Tahkenitch Creek is running deep and/or fast, we will do a creekless loop approximately 7 miles long. For more information call or text Richard O’Neill 541-643-3550.
If you wish to carpool then please come prepared to share gas expenses. We leave from the Douglas County Parking lot (behind the library building) at 8am promptly. Please dress for the weather and bring lunch, water, and wear well-fitting boots.
