March Greyhound Walk

Sorry for the tardiness of this post!  

----------------------------------------

Meet Sunday, March 19, at 1:30 pm at the Jasper
Road Trailhead (3202 Jasper Rd) to walk the
Mill Race path (http://willamalane.org/park/mill-race-path). 
You can go left to connect with
the Middle Fork Path and walk along the river OR
go right and follow the path toward downtown
Springfield. You decide because Monica won’t be
joining you. 

There is a parking lot; the restrooms
should be open (but don’t count on it!); there is
minimal landscaping thus far so be prepared for
mud along the paved path. Have fun!
