5 km. (3.1 miles) or 10 km. (6.2 miles), both rated easy.
Visit parks, walk through the Chambers Covered Railroad Bridge and the Centennial Pedestrian Covered Bridge, then visit the historic Cottage Grove downtown.
Carpools will leave the Willamalane Adult Activities Center, 215 West C Street in Springfield, at 8 a.m. and return there about 1 p.m. A nominal carpool fee should be arranged with the driver to cover car expenses. After the walk, the carpoolers will probably choose a restaurant in Cottage Grove to have lunch together; however, lunch arrangements are always optional for each rider/walker.
People traveling to Cottage Grove on their own should meet the carpoolers at about 8:30 a.m. at the start point, the Middlefield Village Golf Course Pro Shop, 91 Village Drive, Cottage Grove (just east of the freeway; use exit 174). Exact directions to the Pro Shop, and further details of this walk, can be obtained 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 found by clicking on the "National Events" bar on this page and following the prompts. The National Events page also has links to Volkswalks in Canada and 40 other countries (click on "About Us" and "IVV Website").
