Check walk new Cottage Grove Town YRE walk route
10 km. (6.1 miles), rated easy.
The new Year Round Event town walk route for 2017 in Cottage Grove includes streets and sidewalks through the historic downtown, the restored Chambers Railroad Covered Bridge, the Centennial Covered Bridge, and new city parks. Cottage Grove has been named an All-American City.
Carpools will leave the Willamalane Adult Activity Center, 215 West C Street in Springfield, at 9 a.m. A modest car fee can be decided by the riders. People traveling to Cottage Grove on their own can meet the carpoolers at about 9:30 a.m. at the walk start point, the Middlefield Village Golf Pro Shop at 91 Village Drive (east of I-5).
Since check walks involve measuring and, if necessary, modifying the walk route, they usually take much longer to complete than the usual Volkswalk. If there are enough walkers to divide the route into two parts, we should finish between noon and 1 p.m. At that time, some of the participants may decide to have lunch together (purely optional, of course).
Directions to the Golf Pro Shop, and further details on this walk, may be found by clicking on the "Other Oregon Events" bar in the top left corner of this page, then "Year Round Events" and scrolling down to "Cottage Grove - Town Walk". 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.
