Eugene Year Round Walk
5 km. (3.1 miles) rated easy, or 10 km. (6.2 miles) rated moderately easy.
Our popular "Roses and History" year round walk features wide paved paths along the Willamette River Greenway, the Owen Rose Garden (should be in full bloom this weekend), the historic Shelton-Murphy House, the summit of Skinner Butte (with great views), Campbell Senior Center, River Play innovative playground, and the replica of Eugene Skinner's early cabin. The 5 km. route skips the climb up (and down) Skinner Butte.
We will meet in the lobby of the Valley River Inn, 1000 Valley River Way in Eugene, at 9 a.m. to start the walk. We should finish the 10 km. route by noon. At that time, several of the walkers will probably choose to have lunch together at a restaurant at Valley River Center; this is purely optional, of course.
