Eugene Year Round Walk
7 km. (4.3 miles) or 10 km. (6.2 miles), both rated easy.
Walk on wide paved paths along the Willamette River and past a few residential areas. Visit the Delta Ponds on smooth gravel and bark trails. In both areas, observe a variety of waterfowl and wildlife.
Meet at 9 a.m. in the lobby of the Valley River Inn, 1000 Valley River Way in Eugene, to register and start the walk. We should finish at about 11:30 a.m., at which time some of the walkers will probably choose a restaurant in the Valley River area to have lunch together; this is purely optional, of course.
