5 km. (3.1 miles) or 10 km. (6.2 miles), rated easy. Extra 4 km. (2.5 miles) option, rated moderate.
The 5 km. walk goes through rural areas of the Oregon State University campus to and from the Irish Bend Covered Bridge. The 10 km. route continues on the Midge Cramer Trail through rural areas to the edge of Bald Hill. The 4 km. option goes to the top of Bald Hill for great views of the Cascades and Coast Ranges and surrounding areas. All the routes end on the historic part of the OSU campus.
Carpools will leave the Willamalane Adult Activity Center, 215 West C Street in Springfield, at 9 a.m. and return there about 3:30 p.m. Each rider pays the driver $5 to help cover car expenses. After 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 group at about 10 a.m. at the start point, the Book Bin located at 215 West 4th Street in Corvallis.
