The South Coast Striders invite the public to join them on a hike along the Arago Pack Trail between Cape Arago Point and Shore Acres, south of Charleston.

Take a 2.5 mile, one-way trip from Cape Arago Point on the Arago Pack Trail toward Simpson Reef (with a brief stop there to check out the local wildlife) then along the Oregon Coast Trail to a point .25 miles south of Shore Acres Botanical Garden.  (Those wishing to end their hike here need to arrive a little early (8:30 a.m.) to set a vehicle beside the road .25 miles south of Shore Acres.

For those wanting a longer hike, the group will cross the highway and take the Arago Pack Trail back to Arago Point for a total of six miles of hiking.   The short hike is rated moderate and the long hike is rated moderate to difficult.
