This presentation is part of the Cape Perpetua Speaker Series, hosted by the Cape Perpetua Collaborative.

The roughly 30 miles of Oregon Coast between Waldport and Florence is a hiker’s dream: long, wide beaches, trails through old growth forest, spectacular viewpoints, and more. Join hiking guidebook author Bonnie Henderson to learn about her favorite day hikes north and south of Yachats and to ask questions about day hiking and even backpacking on the central Oregon Coast.


Journalist Bonnie Henderson is an avid hiker the author of two guidebooks from Mountaineers Books, Day Hiking: Oregon Coast and Best Hikes with Kids in Oregon; her third guidebook, Hiking the Oregon Coast Trail, is due out in fall 2021. She is also the author of two critically acclaimed nonfiction books, The Next Tsunami: Living on a Restless Coast and Strand: An Odyssey of Pacific Ocean Debris. She currently serves as communications coordinator for North Coast Lake Conservancy based in Seaside, Oregon.
