5 km. (3.1 miles) or 10 km. (6.2 miles), both rated easy.
This walk visits three parks, three historic districts with many historic homes, the Willamette riverfront (on boardwalk and paved path), and the new beautiful Albany Carousel. There are possibly more historic homes in Albany than in any other Oregon town (including Portland).
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 Albany to have lunch together; however, lunch arrangements are always optional for each rider/walker.
People traveling to Albany on their own should plan to meet the carpoolers at about 8:45 a.m. at the start point, Pop's Branding Iron Restaurant, 901 Pacific Blvd. (Hwy. 99E) in Albany. Directions to the Branding Iron, and further details of 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 "Albany - Historic". Alternately, the same information on this and thousands of other Volkswalks and Volksbikes throughout the United States can be obtained by clicking on the "National Events" bar on this page, then "Events" and following the prompts. The National Events page also has links to Volkswalks in Canada and 39 other countries (click on "About Us" and "IVV Website").
