McCleary Bear Festival Walk

This event features 6K, 10K, and 16K walks in connection with the McCleary Bear Festival, located in the town of McCleary about 20 miles west of Olympia. The walks go in and around McCleary, and also follow tree-covered trails through parts of the neighboring Port Blakely Tree Farm.  Music and food vendors add to the fun.

Start/Finish Times: Walkers may begin walking any time between 9 a.m. and noon, and must be finished by 3:00 PM.

Accessability/Amenities: The walks may be possible for big-wheel strollers, but not for wheelchairs. Restrooms and water will be available at the start and finish. Dogs are permitted; owners must observe leash and clean up laws.

Food/Water: Food will be available from Bear Festival vendors, or bring a picnic lunch; water will be provided.

    I was down there before noon, and couldn't find it.
    Nice little festival going on. I may just 'show up' at
    the River Walk tomorrow.

      I am sorry to hear you did not find the start point. Yes, the address was a couple of blocks off but there were big orange signs pointing to the entrance for the volksmarch. I do hope to see you at the Riverwalk.

      Riverwalk 'next' week. No problem about the address, and even my GPS was acting up. I just totally enjoyed being out for the day, anyways.
