Dallas Year Round Walk
5 km. (3.1 miles) or 10 km. (6.2 miles), both rated easy.
The route for this Year Round Walk takes us through the historic downtown with its iconic Courthouse Square, then through the Hunter Arboretum Gardens and along the Rickreall Creek. The 10 km. route extends further along the creek's trail and finishes going through a newer residential area.
Carpools leave the Willamalane Adult Activity Center at 8 a.m. and return there about 3 p.m. Each rider pays the driver $5 to help cover car expenses. Following the walk, the carpoolers will probably choose a restaurant to have lunch together on the way back; however, lunch arrangements are always optional for each rider/walker.
People traveling to Dallas on their own should plan to meet the carpoolers at about 9:30 a.m. at the start point, the Pressed Coffee and Wine Bar at 788 Main Street in Dallas. Directions to the start point, along with further information on the walk, may be found by clicking on the "Other Oregon Events" bar at the top left of this page, then "Year Round Events" and scrolling down to "Dallas - Historic and Nature Walk".
