Toledo Year Round Walk
5 km. (3.1 miles) or 10 km. (6.2 miles), both rated moderately easy.
Explore the edge of the Yaquina River, then walk the hills overlooking the river. Along the way, you'll pass a historic railroad museum and a large operating Georgia-Pacific mill. Also walk through the historic downtown. We will be joined by members of the Yachats Coastal Gems Volkssport Club.
Carpools will leave the Valley River Inn, 1000 Valley River Way in Eugene, at 7:30 a.m. and return there at about 4:30 p.m. Riders pay the driver $10 to help cover car expenses. After the walk, the carpoolers will probably choose a restaurant in the area for lunch together; however, lunch arrangements are always optional for each rider/walker.
People traveling to Toledo on their own should plan to meet the carpoolers at about 10 a.m. at the registration point, the JC Thriftway Market at 336 NE US-20 Business in Toledo. The walk start point is several blocks drive from there.
