Waterloo, Oregon, walk
5 km. (3.1 miles) or 10 km. (6.2 miles), both rated moderately easy.
The Waterloo County Campground is located between Albany and Lebanon, along the South Santiam River. Today's Volkswalk is part of a two day "Find Big Foot" event there. The walks go through both the campground and the small town of Waterloo. Be sure to carry water.
Carpools will leave the Willamalane Adult Activity Center, 215 West C Street in Springfield, at 7 a.m. and return there about 1:30 p.m. Each rider pays the driver $5 to help cover car expenses. For lunch, the carpoolers may opt for the barbeque in the park or they may decide to go to a restaurant in Albany; whatever the group decides, each person can still make their own lunch arrangements.
People traveling to Waterloo on their own should plan to meet the group at about 8 a.m. at the start point in the Waterloo Linn County Campground, 39510 Gross Street (post office Waterloo, OR). Or, they may choose to do the walk on their own, starting anytime between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m.
