South Coast Striders, Saturday, Oct. 16, 10 a.m., Dellenback Dunes Hike – This hike is limited to about 15 people, but if demand is high (and we have enough leaders) we can stagger start times. Requires Registration–Registration Form. The dunes can be incredible at any time of the year, but they are easier to hike after some rain, so I hope we get some by the time we do this hike. This will be a hike from the trailhead to the beach and back (about 5 miles). It mainly takes us across the dunes, then through a forested area, and then to the beach. We can spend a little time on the beach before returning the way we came. In the past part of the group has hiked south on the beach and then along ten mile creek, looping back to the main trail. If someone volunteers to lead that hike (which is about 9 miles). we will offer that as an option. Email if you wish to volunteer. Location and Time: We will meet at the Dellenback Dunes Trail head at 10:00. Directions: From Coos Bay Visitor Center, travel north on Hwy. 101 – 15.4 miles to John Dellenback Dunes Trail on left next. Note that there is a $5.00 day use fee unless you have a recreation pass. There may not be a way to purchase it at the trailhead itself.
