This walk goes through a covered railroad bridge (restored without tracks) and a covered pedestrian bridge. The walk also visits the historic downtown. Cottage Grove has been named an All American City.
Carpools will leave the Willamalane Adult Activity Center, 215 West C Street in Springfield, at 9 a.m. and return there between 12:30 and 1:30 p.m. A nominal carpooling fee will be agreed upon by the driver and the riders. The carpoolers may or may not decide to have lunch together at a restaurant in Cottage Grove (that will determine the return time). In either event, lunch arrangements are always optional for each rider/walker.
People traveling to Cottage Grove on their own should plan to meet the group at 9:30 a.m. at the start point, the Middlefield Village Golf Course Pro Shop, 91Village Drive, Cottage Grove (to the east of the freeway). Exact directions to the pro shop, and further details on 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".
