We drove over to Newport in the motor home, went to the Oregon Coast Aquarium (with two free tickets given to us!), walked this trail, situated ourselves at South Beach State Park, walked to Flashbacks for All-American Burgers and shakes, and walked to the beach for a sunset. It was a special family day.
By the way, we were the last people to walk on this nature trail. Erosion has eaten away at the trail, and the lawyers made them shut it down. The guy was putting up the barrier told us we could walk on it since he wasn't finished yet!
