Sweet Home Covered Bridge Walk
5 km. (3.1 miles) or 10 km. (6.2 mies), both rated easy.
This walk begins at the Weddle covered bridge in Sanky Park. From there, it goes along 14th Street through residential and commercial areas in Sweet Home. This is a smaller town that seldom has a Volkswalk, so this is a rare opportunity to explore it at a leisurely pace with Volkssport friends.
Carpools leave the Willamalane Adult Activity Center, 215 West C Street in Springfield, at 8 a.m. and return there about 3 p.m. Each rider pays the driver $5 to help cover car expenses. Following the walk, the carpoolers will probably choose a restaurant in Sweet Home or Brownsville to have lunch together; however, lunch arrangements are always optional for each rider/walker.
Persons traveling to Sweet Home on their own should plan to meet the carpoolers at about 9 a.m. at the start point, Sanky Park in Sweet Home. Or, they may do the walk on their own, starting anytime between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. from the park.
