Eugene Delta Ponds Year Round Walk
7 km. (3.7 miles) or 10 km. (6.2 miles), both rated easy.
The 7 km. route is on wide paved paths along the Willamette River. The 10 km. route also includes improved gravel/bark paths beside the Delta Ponds. Both areas usually have abundant birds and wildlife.
We will meet and register in the lobby of Valley River Inn, 1000 Valley River Way in Eugene, at 9 a.m. We should finish the walk by 12 noon (or earlier); at this time, several of the walkers will probably decide to have lunch together at one of the restaurants in the Valley River area; this is purely optional, of course.
