Yachats New Year's Day Peace Hike

Start the new year on the right foot and join the 8th annual Yachats New Year's Day Peace Hike! This year the event returns to its roots as a 6 mile round trip hike from the Yachats Commons to the Amanda Trail Grotto where the traditional silent procession and fire ceremony will be held. Check-in for the hike begins at the Commons at 9:30 a.m. (Note that due to traffic safety concerns, no parking or shuttle service will be available at the Kittel driveway along Hwy. 101 this year.)

As an alternative, for those not participating in the hike, a candlelight vigil will also be held in the Yachats Little Log Church from 9:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Members of the Confederated Tribes of Coos, Lower Umpqua and Siuslaw Indians will begin the vigil with the Story of Amanda, for whom the Amanda Trail is named.

A news release with details for the 2018 hike will be posted here as the date nears.
