Stayton "Check Walk"
5 km. (3.1 miles) and 10 km. (6.2 miles), both rated easy.
The Silverton Volkssport Club has scheduled a special check walk this day of their August 21 Solar Eclipse Walk routes in Stayton. This is in response to concerns about congestion on August 21. The club invites all interested walkers to join them at 10 a.m. at the Santiam Senior Center, 41818 Kingston-Jordan Road SE in Stayton. The walk may take a little longer than an ordinary Volkswalk, because the directions will be fine tuned as we walk the routes.
We will carpool to the walk, leaving at 8:30 a.m. from the Willamalane Adult Activity Center, 215 West C Street in Springfield. We should return to Springfield about 3:30 p.m., after stopping at a restaurant (to be decided upon) for lunch. Lunch arrangements, however, are always optional for each rider/walker. People going on their own to Stayton are encouraged to be at the Senior Center at 10 a.m. for the group walk, as there will be no directions other than those the walk leader has.
A description of the routes is given at the August 21 box on this calendar. Further details on the routes, and directions to the Senior Center, can be found by clicking on the "Other Oregon Events" bar at the top left of this page and scrolling down to 8/21.
