Delta Ponds year round walk
7 km. (4.3 miles), or 10 km. (6.2 miles), both rated easy.
The 7 km. route follows the east bank of the Willamette River on a wide paved path, then winds through the Delta Ponds on smooth gravel paths. The 10 km. route is on wide paved paths on both sides of the fast flowing Willamette River.
Registration for the walk is at 9 a.m. in the lobby of the Valley River Inn, 1000 Valley River Way in Eugene. We should finish by 12 noon, at which time some of the walkers may decide to have lunch together at a restaurant in the Valley River area; this is purely optional, of course.
