Delta Ponds/Willamette River Year Round Walk
7 km. (4.3 miles) or 10 km. (6.2 miles), both rated easy.
Walk on wide paved paths along the scenic Willamette River, then on a gravel/bark path through the Delta Ponds. A variety of wildlife and birds are seen here. Dogs are okay along the river, but are not allowed at the ponds (more of the Willamette River can be explored by dog owners on this walk).
Meet at 9 a.m. in the lobby of the Valley River Inn, 1000 Valley River Way, Eugene. The walk will probably be completed between 11:30 and noon; at that time, some of the walkers may decide to have lunch together at a restaurant in the Valley River area (purely optional, of course).
