5 km. (3.1 miles) rated easy, or 10 km. (6.2 miles) rated moderately easy.
The 5 km. walk is out and back along Triple Creek Trail.
The 10 km. walk is also along Triple Creek Trail, but continues through neighborhoods and along wooded paths to Meinig Memorial Park.
Carpools leave the Willamalane Adult Activity Center, 215 West C Street in Springfield, at 8 a.m. and return there about 5 p.m. Each rider pays the driver $10 to help cover car expenses. Following the walk, the carpoolers will probably choose a restaurant in Sandy or on the way back to have lunch together; however, lunch arrangements are always optional for each rider/walker.
People traveling to Sandy on their own should plan to meet the carpoolers at about 10:30 a.m. at the start point, the Smokey Hearth Restaurant at 18607 Champion Way on the west side of Sandy. Or, they may do the walk on their own, starting from the restaurant anytime between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.
