Blacklock Point in Curry County is one of the rocky shore habitats that Oregon Shores is currently working to protect.  (For more information, see our website, https://oregonshores.org/ocean.)  So it is good timing that the South Coast Striders have organized a hike to this spot, which is both gorgeous and ecologically important.  The hike takes place on Saturday, Oct. 10, beginning at 10 a.m.

The hike requires registration.  Here is the registration form:  http://canopyweb.com/forms/index.html. The hike is limited to 15 people, for social distancing reasons.  However, if there is more interest, and a second hike leader volunteers, an additional group could hike with a staggered starting time.

The hike is just over five miles long, across fairly level terrain, with great views along the way.  Starting point with be Cape Blanco State Airport.  Plan on about three hours for the hike.  Dress in layers (a windbreaker with a hood is recommended), and bring water and lunch or a snack.

Meet at 10 a.m. at the trailhead just outside the airport entrance.  From Hwy 101, turn west on Airport Road, opposite the entrance of Pacific High School, about 20 miles south of Bandon or 7.2 miles north of Port Orford.
