One of our longest standing walks, rebooted with new Walk Leader Robin. Come and explore parts of the High Line Canal and Aurora city streets. We have a range of colorful participants including a host of friendly and inviting regulars.
Walk Leader: A long time walker of this route, Robin recently was trained to take over for Donna. She’s excited to lead the Aurora Amble 2.0. If you have questions or concerns about weather you can reach Robin at 720-341-2295.
Schedule & Parking: We will meet at 7:30 am from the alcove of the Aurora Central Library, there is plenty of parking in the lot. This is a NEW, earlier time, in anticipation of hotter weather during the summer. We’ll talk through Walk2Connect goals, answer any questions and lightly warm up. Please plan to show up well before 7:30 AM as we will leave NO LATER than 7:35 am. We should be done walking no later than 9:30 am, usually by 9:00! I don’t believe the library is open at this earlier time, so please use the restroom before you come to walk.
–Dogs welcome: We will be doing a loop going back to our starting location. Please be consider whether your dog can handle 4.5 miles when walking in this season and insure that your dog is calm, well behaved and MUST stay leashed. Please be sure to bring baggies.
-There will only be one place where we can use the restroom so please plan to use restroom before you leave home OR before the walk at the library.
-Consider bringing: comfortable socks & shoes, light backpack w/ plenty of water and snacks. Layers appropriate for temperature and weather. Sunglasses or hat and sunscreen as there is not much shade on the path. And a camera (rumor has it a bald eagle frequents the route).
Welcome Waivers: Please fill out the online “Welcome Waiver” or download, print, sign, and turn in a hard copy if this will be your first Walk2Connect walking experience this year.
