Instead of getting bogged down in Black Friday shopping, join the South Coast Striders in hiking Bastendorff Bog on Nov. 29, beginning at 9:30 a.m.

The hike will start in the Sunset Bay Day Use area, on Cape Arago Highway south of Charleston.  The hike will cross the highway, go through the campground, and follow the bog trail out to Yoakam Point, which will provide an excellent view of Cape Arago Lighthouse (above).   The hike will then return to the starting point, and those wanting a longer hike will continue hiking along the coast to Shore Acres and back, seeing some great ocean views and very interesting trees along the way.

Be prepared for any weather conditions with foul weather gear, food and water. The hike is moderate in difficulty, between four and five mostly flat miles.
