For those who'd like to do a 10k (6.2mi) walk tomorrow (there's also a 5k/3.1mi route, too!), there's one on Swan Island (walkoregon.org/eventlst.htm
for more info). The walk is rated 1+, which generally means "Easy walk on pavement or good trails with no significant hills. It takes the average walker two hours or so to complete a walk with this rating," the plus means it might have a little bit of a hill or spots of a poorly maintained trail.
All Volkswalks (ava.org/
) can be walked for free, or if you'd like, pay $5 for a New Walker packet, get your first two books, plus credit (stamps in your books) for your first three walks for free (credit for a walk is usually $3). After certain milestones (10 walks, 500km, etc.) you send in your books and get embroidered patches and hatpins commemorating your journeys!
I'm not affiliated with this walk or any of the local clubs, just a happy Volkswalker who loves seeing new sites!
