Corvallis 30th Anniversary Walk
5 km. (3.1 miles) or 10 km. (6.2 miles), both rated easy.
This walk has two 5 km. loops, do one or both. They both pass many of Corvallis's beautiful historic homes. Come enjoy this vibrant college town with its colorful historic downtown, riverfront area, and bustling outdoor market. Extra incentive: 30th Anniversary birthday cake at the finish!
Carpools leave the Willamalane Adult Activity Center, 215 West C Street in Springfield, at 8 a.m.and return there about 2 p.m. Each rider pays the driver $5 to help cover car expenses. Following the walk, the carpoolers will probably choose a restaurant in Corvallis to have lunch together; however, lunch arrangements are always optional for each rider/walker.
People traveling to Corvallis on their own should plan to meet the carpoolers at about 9:15 a.m at the start point, The Book Bin, 215 SW 4th Street in Corvallis. Or, they may do the walk on their own, starting from The Book Bin anytime between 8 a.m. and noon.
