Check "Talking Stones" Walk in Eugene
5 km. (3.1 miles) or 10 km. (6.2 miles), both rated easy.
The Mossbacks will sponsor a "Kalapuya Talking Stones" walk in Alton Baker Park on October 10. Fourteen stones are now in place, and in addition, the walk will feature the canoe canal, the Willamette River Greenway paths, and the new I-5 bridge over the Willamette.
Today, we will walk both routes, checking for distance and for clarity of directions. Because there is usually some stopping to edit directions and to perhaps try an alternate section of route, the check walk takes much longer than an ordinary Volkswalk.
If you would like to help, join us at 8 a.m. at the Willamalane Adult Activity Center, 215 West C Street in Springfield (we'll proceed to the park from there). We should be finished by noon, at which time those who want will choose a restaurant to have lunch together.
