5 km. (3.1 miles) or 10 km. (6.2 miles), both rated easy.
The 5 km. walk includes the Gresham Art Walk and the Farmers Market, as well as interesting downtown and residential areas. The 10 km. walk continues to the large Gradin Sports Park.
Carpools leave the Willamalane Adult Activity Center, 215 West C Street in Springfield, at 7 a.m. and return there about 5 p.m. Each rider pays the driver $10 to help cover car expenses. Following the walk, the carpoolers will probably choose a restaurant somewhere in Gresham or Portland to have lunch together; however, lunch arrangements are always optional for each rider/walker.
People traveling to the walk on their own should plan to meet the carpoolers at about 9:45 a.m. at the start point, the Gresham City Hall at 1333 NW Eastman Parkway in Gresham. Or, they can do the walk on their own, starting from the city hall anytime between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.
