10 km. (6.2 miles) or less (you choose), rated easy.
This walk features parks, a restored railroad covered bridge and pedestrian covered bridge, and the historic downtown.
Carpools leave the Willamalane Adult Activity Center, 215 West C Street in Springfield, at 8 a.m. and return there about 1 p.m. Each rider pays the driver a nominal amount (whatever seems right) to help cover car expenses. Following the walk, the carpoolers may or may not choose a Cottage Grove restaurant to have lunch together; whatever is decided, lunch arrangements still remain optional for each rider/walker.
People driving to Cottage Grove on their own should plan to meet the carpoolers at about 8:30 a.m. at the registration point, the Middlefield Village Golf Course Pro Shop at 91 Village Drive (east of I-5). From there, it is a short drive to the start point. Exact driving directions to the Pro Shop, and further details of this walk, can be found by clicking on the "Other Oregon Events" bar at the top left of this page, then "Year Round Events" and scrolling down to "Cottage Grove - Covered Bridges". Alternately, the same information on this and thousands of other Volkswalks and Volksbikes throughout the United States can be obtained by clicking on the "National Events" bar on this page, then "Events" and following the prompts. The National Events page also has links to Volkswalks in Canada and 39 other countries (click on "About Us" and "IVV Website").
