5 km. (3.1 miles) or 10 km. (6.2 miles), both rated easy.
This walk, in commemoration of St. Patrick's Day, will go through the new Owondo Woods Park, also Orchard Park, Noble Woods Park, other smaller neighborhood parks and along nice residential streets.
Carpools leave the Willamalane Adult Activities Center, 215 West C Street in Springfield, at 8 a.m. and return there about 5 p.m. Each rider pays the driver $10 to help cover car expenses. Following the walk, the carpoolers will probably choose a restaurant in the area to have lunch together; however, lunch arrangements are always optional for each rider/walker.
People traveling to Hillsboro on their own should plan to meet the carpoolers at about 10:30 a.m. at the start point, the Unitarian Universalist Community Church Parish House, 1340 NW 228th Avenue in Hillsboro, or they may choose to do the walk on their own, starting from the Parish House anytime between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.
