Estacada Murals Walk
6 km. (3.7 miles) rated easy, or 10 km. (6.2 miles) rated moderately easy.
This walk is held in conjunction with the annual Estacada Summer Celebration Festival. Festival activities are listed at estacadasc.org. Both walks are on paved paths through wooded town and residential areas (with a few unimproved short trails). Estacade has a newly designed downtown area, and sports 22 murals, most of which can be seen on this walk; also at artbackmurals.com.
Carpools will leave the Willamalane Adult Activity Center, 215 West C Street in Springfield, at 7 a.m. and return there between 4 and 5 p.m. Each rider pays the driver $10 to help cover car expenses, Following the walk, the carpoolers will probably choose a nearby restaurant to have lunch together; however, lunch arrangements are always optional for each rider/walker.
People traveling to Estacada on their own should plan to meet the carpoolers at about 9:15 a.m. at the start point, Timber Park Picnic Shelter #2, 30878 NW Evergreen Way on the west side of Estacada. Or, they may do the walk on their own, starting anytime between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. from the Park.
