Day Trip to Bandon, Oregon, Area

Porcupine leading the way on New River Trail.

This trail is an easy 3.2 mile loop trail that runs through a number of habitat types. Two short sections of the trail go along the road. Actually the loop is a collection of 6 short trails: Ocean View Trail, Huckleberry Hill Trail, Ridge Trail, North Trail, Muddy Lake Trail and Old Bog Trail. Map is from New River Trail Guide fround on BLM's web site.

Anne and Craig were in the same general area of the Oregon coast so we got together for a hike and a late lunch.

Coquille Point

Coquille River Lighthouse Originally named Bandon Light, Coquille River Light was commissioned in 1895. Over the years, the condition of the light deteriorated due to neglect and vandalism. Its first major restoration began 1976 and in 1991 a new solar powered light was installed in the tower.

Local Flavor – Area Businesses We Enjoyed & Recommend
Bandon Fish Market This laid back restaurant has wild caught seafood items on the menu & selected craft beers. We both enjoyed the Halibut burger that came with a side of clam chowder.
