5 km. (3.1 miles), rated easy, or 10 km. (6.2 miles), rated moderately easy.
The 5 km. route includes the Wallace Marine Park, and goes through business and residential areas. The 10 km. route continues through the Audubon Nature Preserve and by newer hilltop homes. The impressive Willamette River flows by these routes.
Carpools will leave the Willamalane Adult Activity Center, 215 West C Street in Springfield, at 8 a.m. and return there about 3 p.m. Each rider pays the driver $5 to help cover car expenses. Following the walk, the group will probably choose a restaurant in Salem or Albany to have lunch together; however, lunch arrangements are always optional for each rider/walker.
People traveling to Salem on their own for this walk should plan to meet the group at about 9:30 a.m. at the start point, the Courthouse Fitness Center, 300 Glen Creek Road in Salem.
