Yachats Fish Fry in July Walk
The Yachats Coastal Gems offer you Food, Fitness, Friendship, and great views of the Pacific Ocean this July 14th in Yachats “The Gem of the Oregon Coast.” We are located on Hwy 101 26 miles north of Florence and 23 miles south of Newport. From Hwy 5 in Oregon, turn west on Hwy 126, Hwy 20 or Hwy 99 (shifting onto Hwy 18) to Hwy 101 and follow the signs to the coast. Yachats is located on Hwy 101 north of the end of Hwy 126 in Florence, and south of the end of Hwy 20 in Newport. The Commons is on the west side of Hwy 101 in downtown Yachats.
The Yachats Fish Fry in July Walk event has a 10km and a 5kmroute rated 2B for uneven surfaces and incline on the 10km portion. The walk starts at the Yachats Commons, 441 Hwy 101 N between 4th and 5th Street.
You will saunter by the sea on the historic 804 trail watching the waves crash against the rocks and over the tide pools then wend your way along the edge of the land.The 10km walkers will wander up the east side of Yachats for a better view of the sea. After the walk feast on fish and other locally prepared comestibles at the AHOY! YACHATS LIONS ANNUAL FISH FRY and enjoy the 32th Annual Yachats Music Festival (http://www.yachats.info/ymf/).
If you are coming from afar, you may want to stay long enough to enjoy one or more of our other walks here on the mid-coast of Oregon. Check out our other walks listed on the upper left of this page.
Yachats Coastal Gems began in 1991 as a Yachats club but now serves a majority of the Oregon Coast. We have two YRE walks in Newport, one walk in Depoe Bay, two walks in Yachats, two in Lincoln City, and another in Florence. We’re not the biggest club nor do we have the most events, but we do know how to put on a party. All of our walks are listed with directions and descriptions at www.ava.org.
