This week let's do the Langus Riverfront Trail.
Nice easy, level, paved walk along the river for the most part (one small section is gravel road if you complete the loop rather than turning around and going back the same way). About a 3-4 miles depending if we do the loop or do a u turn and return the way we came.
Langus Riverfront Park
Langus Riverfront Park, adjacent to the Snohomish River, boasts premier river access with a boat launch, fishing pier, shell house and rowing dock. The three-mile paved trail is perfect for walking, jogging and biking. It is also a great vantage point to see waterfowl, raptors and shorebirds.

Daylight savings time, spring and summer, evening walks. The extra light gives us more options and the opportunity to explore park trails as well as surrounding neighborhoods. We will be able to see things we don't usually get to see on our dark winter evening walks.
We may be walking on trails in parks and probably some neighborhoods surround the parks. The paths may be muddy, dusty, uneven and rocky in places. Come prepared with proper footwear - no flip flops or crocs. There may be some uphill and down but I will try not to make it too strenuous and if you have difficulty let me know and I may be able to provide an alternate route. We will walk 3-5 miles, in about 1.5 to 2 hours (starting promptly at 7 we will be done by 9pm)
Dogs in attendance must be leashed and have their owner present.
No children under the age of 12, unless they are in a stroller.
We will make it a priority to walk as a group. Paces may be a little different but I will stop along the way for others to catch up. Everybody needs to watch out for others. Let somebody know if you need a break or are going to turn around/
Please check email or this site the day of the event for any last minute changes or cancellations due to weather, road closures, illness, etc. I will try to post last minute details by 7am.
