Cottage Grove Year Round Walk
10 km. (6.2 miles), rated easy.
This walk in an All-American City uses city streets and sidewalks to view the historic downtown and to cross the restored Chambers Railroad Covered Bridge and the Centennial Covered (pedestrian) Bridge.
Carpools will leave the Willamalane Adult Activity Center, 215 West C Street in Springfield, at 9 a.m. and return there about 2 p.m. Following the walk, the carpoolers will probably choose a restaurant in Cottage Grove to have lunch together; however, lunch arrangements are always optional for each rider/walker.
People traveling to Cottage Grove on their own should plan to meet the carpoolers at about 9:30 a.m. at the start point, the Middlefield Golf Course Pro Shop, 90 Village Drive in Cottage Grove (east of I-5). Directions to the pro shop, and further details of this walk, can be found by clicking on the "Other Oregon Events" bar at the top left of this page, then "Year Round Events" and scrolling down to "Cottage Grove - Covered Bridges". Alternately, the same information on this and thousands of other Volkswalks and Volksbikes throughout the United States can be obtained by clicking on the "National Events" bar on this page, then "Events" and following the prompts. The National Events page also has links to Volkswalks in Canada and over 40 other countries.
