    Hey, TDHanger!
    The closest major airport to the trail head would be Eugene, Oregon. From there, you have two driving choices. #1-- it's about a 3.0 hour drive if you go along the coast. It goes by fast, as the drive from Eugene to the coast, then north along the coast (Hwy. 101), is one of the most scenic drive in the US.
    #2--Go from Eugene to Corvallis, then on to Tidewater, Oregon, where the Sanctuary tour and hike is. This is less scenic, but only 1.5 hours to get there.

    Driving Directions From Eugene, Or, airport (from Mapquest):

    28801 Douglas Dr Eugene, OR 97402-9526

    1. Start out going southeast on Douglas Dr.

    0.4 mi
    2. Douglas Dr becomes Airport Rd.

    0.6 mi
    3. Turn left onto Green Hill Rd.

    If you are on Airport Rd and reach Old Airport Rd you've gone about 0.2 miles too far


    1.2 mi
    4. Turn right onto Awbrey Ln.

    Awbrey Ln is 0.9 miles past Old Airport Rd
    If you reach Hollis Ln you've gone about 1.1 miles too far


    0.2 mi
    5. Turn left onto Highway 99 N/OR-99. Continue to follow OR-99.

    If you reach Brown Ln you've gone about 0.4 miles too far


    7.1 mi
    6. Turn left onto 18th Ave W/OR-99W. Continue to follow OR-99W.

    OR-99W is just past W 17th Ave


    8.6 mi
    7. Turn left onto Alpine Cut Off Rd.

    Alpine Cut Off Rd is 0.1 miles past Reiling Ave
    If you reach Alpine Rd you've gone about 0.6 miles too far


    0.8 mi
    8. Turn slight left onto Alpine Rd.

    Alpine Rd is 0.3 miles past Springhill Dr


    8.9 mi
    9. Turn left to stay on Alpine Rd.

    0.8 mi
    10. Alpine Rd becomes Glenbrook Rd.

    1.4 mi
    11. Glenbrook Rd becomes Fall Creek Access Rd.

    0.8 mi
    12. Stay straight to go onto S Fork Rd.

    7.8 mi
    13. Turn left to stay on S Fork Rd.

    0.7 mi
    14. Turn right onto Alsea Deadwood Hwy.

    0.9 mi
    15. Alsea Deadwood Hwy becomes S 1st St.

    0.10 mi
    16. Turn left onto Alsea Hwy/OR-34.

    Alsea Hwy is just past Market St
    If you are on N 1st St and reach W Alder St you've gone a little too far

    17. Welcome to TIDEWATER, OR.

    Your destination is 0.2 miles past E Alsea Riviera Dr
    If you reach E Sjostrom Dr you've gone about 0.1 miles too far

    As always, out of staters are VERY welcome! Hope you can make it!

    I'm hoping to attend. If I do, I'll get my donation in as quickly as I can. I could also help haul gear or people if needed. I'm in Veneta.

    That's awesome! Thanks, 5TH. I'll probably take you up on that offer. We might have a few out of staters coming for the hang this year (it just keeps getting bigger every year)

    PS--BTW--we should get together for a hike or something. You, me, and skewed are all in the same place. Maybe Rip Waverly will come...IF we're lucky. LOL. (sorry, private joke).

    Hah! I just watched Rip's video of the first hang, and recognized someone in the video. Gavinar is a co-worker of mine...

    Not to be presumptuous, I will add a 3rd option if you fly into Eugene: ride along with me.

    I am game. My availability isn't the best but I certainly will try my best. Sundays are usually great.

    Cheers,

    Yeah, me too. I typically have Sun/Mon off. Usually I will hike in somewhere late Saturday night and leave sometime Monday morning.

    As I now live in Florida, and am buying a house next month, I don't think I will make the Hang, but I will try to donate so the price break is available to all. I'll need a reminder in July.

    I haven't seen Gavinar in forever! He just dropped off the face of the earth. See if he wants to come this year, we'd love to have him.
