Albany Year Round Walk
5 km. (3.1 miles) or 10 km. (6.2 miles), both rated easy.
This Year Round Walk consists of two 5 km. loops: do one or both. Both loops feature the Linn-Benton Community College campus and nearby wooded areas. Hiking shoes are recommended. Carry water.
Carpools will leave the Willamalane Adult Activity Center, 215 West C Street in Springfield, at 8 a.m. and return there about 2 p.m. Each rider pays the driver $5 to help cover car expenses. Following the walk, the carpoolers will probably opt to have lunch together at an Albany restaurant; however, lunch arrangements are always optional for each rider/walker.
People traveling to Albany on their own should plan to meet the carpoolers at about 9 a.m. at the start point, the Java Network inside the Lakeshore Lanes bowling alley at 5444 Pacific Blvd. (Hwy. 99E) in the southern part of Albany. Specific directions to the bowling alley, along with further details of this walk, can 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 "Albany - Wellness Trail".
