5 km. (3.1 miles) or 10 km. (6.2 miles), both rated easy.

This beautiful walk along Dorena Lake starts at Harms Park and is on an out and back path to Bake Stewart Park. The 5 km. route turns around before reaching Bake Stewart Park.

The Row River Trail is a Rails to Trails path paved and maintained by the Bureau of Land Management. It is on the roadbed of the former Bohemia Mines Railroad. The walk is pleasant in all seasons.

Carpools will leave the Willamalane Adult Activities Center, 215 West C Street in Springfield, at 9 a.m. and return there about 2 p.m. Each rider pays the driver a small fee decided by mutual agreement. Following the walk, the carpoolers will probably choose a restaurant in Cottage Grove to have lunch together; however, lunch arrangements are always optional for each rider/walker.

People traveling to Cottage Grove on their own should plan to meet the carpoolers at 9:30 a.m. at the registration point, the Middlefield Golf Course Pro Shop, 91 Village Drive, east of I-5 in Cottage Grove. They then drive approximately 6 miles to Harms Park. Specific directions to the Pro Shop, and further information about 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 - Row River Trail/Dorena Lake". 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.
