7 km. (4.3 miles) or 10 km. (6.2 miles), rated easy.
Today's walk is on the wide paved paths along the Willamette River from Valley River Inn to the north end of the automobile dealers, then across Goodpasture Island Road to the Delta Ponds. The gravel path along the ponds is an out-and-back, then walkers return across the road to the river and the Inn. Waterfowl and other wildlife are abundant here; this is a popular area for walkers, bicyclists, and bird watchers.
Meet at 9 a.m. in the lobby at the Valley River Inn, 1000 Valley River Way, Eugene. The walk will probably finish between 11:30 a.m. and noon. At that time, some of the walkers will probably choose a restaurant to have lunch together; this is purely optional, of course.
