Cal Poly Pomona Campus Walk - about 2 miles paved with few inclines

Join us for a walk around some of the most beautiful and scenic areas in the 1400+ acres of the Cal Poly campus. We'll hike up and see cereal magnate Kellogg's summer mansion, his beloved rose garden, the new Japanese garden, the duck pond, a "Biotrek" featuring exotic plants, and the environmental college's lovely landscaping decor. We might also meet some Arabian horses and moo-cows if your canine pal is willing (otherwise, we can skip these parts of the campus). There'll also be ducks, geese, turtles, koi, rabbits, and piggies depending on which route we take. This is a very beautiful walking tour of the campus that your pup will love. This is a 90% paved walk with very little "off-road" time. Most of the walk is without inclines. There is a mild 1/2 mile hike up to the mansion on paved road.

Parking is $2 for two hours, which will be more than enough for the walk.

The university will be on Winter break so the campus should be peaceful and serene. There are very few staff/faculty/students on campus, and there will be lots or great photo opportunities so bring a camera! **THERE IS A LIKELIHOOD THIS EVENT MAY BE POSTPONED OR CANCELLED DUE TO RAIN, PLEASE CHECK YOUR EMAIL OR EVENT PAGE FOR UPDATES**

    Hey guys, this will be my first event with the group. (I'm pretty excited to introduce my buddy to some new friends!) I was wondering if we're just meeting in Lot G and taking off from there, or are we parking there and meeting on-campus?

      Raining a little more than I thought it would. Will have to tap out this round. :( Hope to meet you all in the next.

    I am actually up for this walk even if it rains a bit, just not crazy downpour. Right now the forecasts are saying it's going to rain Saturday (20% chance) during evening so we should be OKAY. I will probably not postpone this event, please bring an umbrella or poncho y'all!

    I am a student at Cal Poly and it is the weekend before finals. However I feel like this would be a good break for my pup and I.

    I've set the date for Saturday Dec 7th, 2:00PM. This will be right after finals during the students' winter break. Faculty/staff may still be working but the campus should not be busy.

      I start finals that Monday, so I'm out. Next time!

      November 13, 2013

  • Rachel

    Would anyone be able to do this on the 23?

    November 9, 2013

  • Nexon S.

    We may need to push this to mid-November, or the first Saturday of winter break (when school's out) sometime in December after Thanksgiving. I know this seems like it'll be a while, but with all the other events going on in Oct and the Potatoe Mtn hike in early Nov. right before Thanksgiving, this might work best in December...

      Would love to do this any time, as long as it's a weekend!

  • Nexon S.

    We will do this on a Saturday when the weather is cooler! Sorry for the wait, you guys will love this walk!
