What we're about

Welcome to America's Walking Club Meetup sponsored by the Oregon Trail State Volkssport Association (OTSVA). Like to walk? Tired of walking alone? Bored with your usual routes? We walk in ones, twos and more over different distances and terrains in different cities and neighborhoods two or more times a week most of the year. Our basic walks are 6.2 miles (10km) but almost all have 3.1 mile (5km) or other distances to fit whomever shows for the walk that day. We walk in forests and towns, on flat and hilly surfaces, and can accommodate any speed walker. We cheerfully leave no walker behind. In most cases we allow your well behaved furry friends to join too. We don't charge a monthly fee, but do ask for small donations to help us continue our walks. If you like walking with us please feel free to ask about joining our club as we would love to get you started as a new member. Hope to see you on the trail soon!
