Yesterday was Ron’s Superbowl Oddity Walk . He led a personal guided tour of his Fort Bragg Oddities Walk – the complete route. He invited the MCLandLopers, a group he walks with, plus anyone else who wanted to join them; I hear 9 people chose to walk around Fort Bragg instead of sitting and watching others run around…
Ron walks all over town… walking, gawking, picture-taking and then blogging about what he sees. His Oddities Tour is a self-guided walk to some of the interesting and unusual things he’s discovered such as: tie-down rings, Glass Beach, Pudding creek trestle, a house that looks like a boat, the two Donnor Party graves , “Shooting” the Vortex, even a short stroll through Otis Johnson park.
Did you miss the last opportunity to walk the future Fort Bragg Coastal Trail?
Then you’re in luck! The City just announced they’re holding a coastal trail design workshop on Saturday, February 13th at 1:00 p.m. at the Fort Bragg Fire Department. In preparation for the workshop, the City is offering guided walks on their newly acquired trail property on Friday, February 12th and Saturday, February 13th.
Friday’s coastal trail walking tour starts at 2 p.m., and Saturday’s walking tour starts at 9:30 a.m. Each tour will take approximately two hours. For now access to the City’s newly acquired parkland property is only available through guided tours, and space is limited, so you need to make a reservation. Whenever they offer guided walks they filled up quickly, so call soon and ask Nancy Philips at (707) 961-2827 to save your spot .
Once you walk the site of the future trail, you may be inspired to help design the trail network, parking, and the other amenities of the 65-acre parkland located on the bluffs of the southern portion of the former Mill Site property. The design workshop will be from 1-3 p.m. At 4 p.m., a Community Open House will be held at the Fire Department to review the designs and hear what people have to save. Space for the workshop is also limited, but Nancy Philips at (707) 961-2827 can save a spot for this too.
