Canby Year Round walk
5 km. (3.1 miles) or 10 km. (6.2 miles), both rated easy.
This walk encompasses both city and rural areas, visiting downtown Canby, in-town residential areas, and outlying farmland. Part of the walk is on the Molala Forest Road.
Carpools leave the Willamalane Adult Activity Center, 215 West C Street in Springfield, at 8 a.m. and return there about 3:30 p.m. Each rider pays the driver $5 to help cover car expenses. Following the walk, the carpoolers will probably choose a restaurant on the way home to have lunch together; however, lunch arrangements are always optional for each rider/walker.
People traveling to Canby on their own should plan to meet the carpoolers at about 9:45 a.m. at the start point, Cutsforth's Thriftway grocery store espresso counter, 225 NE 2nd Avenue in Canby.
