Walk Description: 90 minute walks around Aurora via the High Line and West Gate Toll Trails. Come join us for a fun, easy-going, communal and social on-foot experience to start your day. This is also a great way to meet other ‘daily’ walking friends nearby. These walks are very informal and give us all unique opportunities to connect with one another, ourselves and our surroundings. his walk goes rain, shine, snow, but temps must be above 0 and sidewalks clear.
EXPECT TO MAKE SOME FABULOUS CONNECTIONS!
Walking Movement Leader: You are welcome to text me in the morning to check status or confirm the walk is going. See my contact information below. But remember, no news is good news. We go unless otherwise notified. Cheers, Donna
