TYPE: STSP Weekly | PACE: Conversational | TERRAIN: Flat, Dirt Trail | DISTANCE: Approx 2 miles |
Walk Description: Join us for a late morning walk in a lovely natural setting! Get to know new people while enjoying a stroll around the reservoir and through grassland paths. There are many opportunities to spot a wide variety of wildlife while connecting with others and lifting our spirits at the start of the day.
Walking Movement Leader: My name is Lisa Pordon. I am originally from the west coast of Canada, and currently spend most of my time home schooling my 13 year old son. He will be joining me for most walks! I have been car-free for about 18 years, and love walking long distances, and exploring via foot and public transit. My phone number is 720-935-8968 – you are welcome to contact me! My email is also listed below.
Schedule, Planning, and Nearby Transit: We will meet at the gazebo just past the parking lot (across from 7-11) off Lowell Blvd (just north of E Midway). There is ample parking available. We’ll begin with introductions, then do a relaxed loop around the open space, returning to the gazebo in about an hour.
-Kids are welcome – keeping in mind that we will be covering about 2 miles. We will be on a gravel surface – it is well maintained, and should be fine for strollers.
-Friendly well behaved leashed dogs are welcome.
-There are no restrooms along our route, but there is a 7-11 across the street from our start/end point.
-We will walk rain or shine! Contact Lisa (info below) with any questions prior to the walk.
-Cancellation Policy: We only cancel in extreme weather conditions on our path, such as ice, hail, or lightening. Check Meetup or text the walk leader for the most up-to-date conditions.
