5 km. (3.1 miles) or 10 km. (6.2 miles), both rated easy.
Today's walk will be on sidewalks and paved flat portions of the Crown Zellerbach Trail through residential and forested areas, then back to town for the Saturday Market.
Carpools will leave the Willamalane Adult Activity Center, 215 West C Street in Springfield, at 7 a.m. and return there between 4 and 5 p.m. Each rider pays the driver $10 to help cover car expenses. Following the walk, the carpoolers will probably choose a restaurant on the way back to have lunch together; however, lunch arrangements are always optional for each rider/walker.
People traveling to Scappoose on their own should plan to meet the carpoolers at about 9:30 a.m. at the start point in Miller Road Park (on the north side of East Columbia Avenue). Or they may do the walk on their own, starting anytime between 8 a.m. and noon from the park.
