McMinnville year round walk
5 km. (3.1 miles) or 10 km. (6.2 miles), both rated easy.
The 5 km. route includes the Public Art Trail. The 10 km. route goes on to a native plant garden, city park, Joe Dancer (sports) Park, and the grounds of Linfield College.
Carpools leave the Willamalane Adult Activity Center, 215 West C Street in Springfield, at 8 a.m. and return there about 4 p.m. Each rider pays the driver $5 to help cover car expenses. Following the walk, the carpoolers will probably choose a restaurant to have lunch together; however, lunch arrangements are always optional for each rider/walker.
People traveling to McMinnville on their own should plan to meet the carpoolers at about 10 a.m. at the start point, the McMenamin's Hotel Oregon at 310 NE Evans Street in McMinnville.
