5 km. (3.1 miles) or 10 km. (6.2 miles), both rated moderate.
This walk is in Astoria's hills from Astor Street to Niagara Street and return, using several trails and stairways between the streets. Challenging ups and downs lead to spectacular views at the top. Sturdy shoes and walking sticks are advised.
Carpools will leave the Willamalane Adult Activity Center, 215 West C Street in Springfield, at 7 a.m. and return there about 7 p.m. Each rider pays the driver $10 to help cover car expenses. Following the walk, the carpoolers will probably select a restaurant in Astoria to have lunch together; however, lunch arrangements are always optional for each rider/walker.
People traveling to Astoria on their own should plan to meet the carpoolers at about 11 a.m. at the start point, Pier 11 on the Astoria River Walk (parking nearby). Or, they may do the walk on their own, starting from Pier 11 anytime between 9 a.m. and noon.
