What we're about

We are several walking clubs located in the Willamette valley and on the Oregon mid-coast who schedule walks between Salem and Corvallis walk for the fun and sociableness of walking with others.

We walk for the fun of it and welcome all walkers whether quick or slow. If you've wanted to explore, but didn't want to walk alone, come walk with us. We're a friendly lot with opportunities to walk on weekends and weekdays.

Some of our walkers keep track of their walks in a national database as members of the American Volkssport Association (AVA) and local volkswalk clubs (Albany Fitwalkers, Willamette Wanderers, Corvallis Cruisers, Yachats Coastal Gems).
