Salem - SE Salem Year Round Walk
5 km. (3.1 miles) rated easy, or 10 km. (6.2 miles) rated moderately easy
These walks go through relatively new, nicely landscaped neighborhoods in far southeast Salem. The 10 kilometer rating reflects several short hills on the route.
Carpools will leave the Willamalane Adult Activity Center, 215 West C Street in Springfield, at 9 a.m. and return there about 3:30 p.m. Each rider pays the driver $5 to help cover car expenses. Following the walk, the carpoolers will probably choose a restaurant in Salem or Albany to have lunch together; however, lunch arrangements are always optional for each rider/walker.
People traveling to Salem on their own should plan to meet the carpoolers at about 10:15 a.m. at the start point, the Safeway grocery store at 5660 Commercial Street SE in Salem. Directions to this Safeway, and 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 "Salem - SE Salem".
