Are you a long distance walker/hiker. If so, consider joining a group of walkers this Saturday, who are training for the Kalamazoo Nature Center 100-Mile Walk to Lake Michigan. They are doing a 10-Mile Walk Day:

The walk begins at the Comstock KRVT trail head on King Highway. It is a 5-mile out-and-back walk to Mosel Ave in Parchment:

Begin in Comstock at S Wenke Park (on King Hwy near River St) and walk west to the Mayoral Park (break and bathrooms) = 3 mi.

Mayoral Park to Mosel St. = 5 mi.

Mosel to Harrison St (Lunch or Dinner break (picnic tables and bathrooms)) = 6.5 mi.

Harrison to Mayoral Park = 7.1 mi.

Mayoral Park to Comstock = 10 mi.

You can view the route at this link http://www.mapmywalk.com/routes/view/227941767 (http://www.meetup.com/The-Kazoo-Walkers-Meetup-Group/events/wlmailhtml:{77972E21-6C74-4257-BD2E-343A29A3618F}mid:/00000056/!x-usc:http:/www.mapmywalk.com/routes/view/227941767)

Bring a brown bag lunch or stop at either MacKenzie's Bakery for the People's Coop to pick up deli food. Yum!

Allow 4-hours for the walk (24-min miles), plus lunch and breaks.

Bring plenty of water and energy snacks.

Nordic or trekking poles are valuable on long walks and for hikes with uneven surfaces. More info: http://walking.about.com/cs/poles/a/nordicwalking.htm
