Angora Hiking Club has planned over 40 outings for 2020. The big event is the Centennial Celebration is July.
This year’s hikes have been planned for Soapstone Lake, Angora Peak, Bay Ocean and several bike hikes. Some hikes will include experts who will talk about how fish are brought to Warrenton docks and how cranberry harvesting is implemented as well.
The first hike is a commemorative hike in Cannon Beach. It is at 9 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 22. (Rain date 2/29). Participants are to meet in Astoria on Marine Drive between 2nd & 3rd Street, just West of Burger King, to car pool to Cannon Beach. At approximately 9:45 a.m., the hike will begin at the City bus parking lot off South Hemlock in the 100 block. There are restrooms and free parking there.
The walkers will head behind the town to pocket parks, a spruce reserve, ponds ideal for bird watching and (depending on visibility) a secret viewpoint of Haystack Rock. This is an easy hike of 3-4 miles. You do not need to be a member to participate.
All are welcome. However, dogs are not allowed. Membership is $10.00 a year, If you plan to join the walk, call June Baumler at 503 368-4323 by Friday, February 2/21/20. Learn more about the club by logging onto angorahikingclub.org.
