3rd Saturday Walk, July 16 2022
July 16 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 pm
Name: Himes Park Loop with Bagels
Leader: Lee Buhler, Don Baack
Start Location: Ida B Wells Parking Lot Near the Food Carts
Start Time: 9 am (arrive 10-15 min. early so we can start promptly at 9am)
Distance: Approx. 2.5 miles
Pace and Terrain: Our 3rd Saturday Walks are a more casual length and pace (about 2 mile per hour for 2-4 miles) than the fast-paced 2nd Saturday Hikes. This walk will be on both quiet city streets and on trails and paths with uneven surfaces, a few steps, and the possibility of some slippery spots, roots, and short steep sections.
Participation Requirements: Fully COVID vaccinated (including Booster), have masks available as an option for when we gather in close proximity.
Bus Information: Many different buses stop at the intersection of SW Sunset and SW Capitol Hwy.
Route Description: We will leave Ida B. Wells HS and walk down to the Raz-Baack Crossing. From there we will wind back to Himes Park for a coffee and bagel break before crossing SW Terwilliger to head back to the High School. We have asked for good weather. It will be nice to see you!
Because COVID infection numbers are still high, we would like our walkers to be vaccinated. We also ask that you comply with current State recommendations to maintain the recommended social distance between other walkers who are not part of your family or personal pod. Be prepared to mask up for our beginning group talk and if social distancing is impossible while walking. Unvaccinated walkers must mask up for the entire walk.
Bring water and snacks, wear good walking shoes, and dress appropriately for our summer weather. Kids and well-behaved pets on leash are welcome, but no smoking for the health and consideration of others. We try and find a restroom on our walking route but many times nothing is available so prepare accordingly. You are welcome to join us for just a portion of the hike but let a hike leader or sweep person know when you are leaving the hike.
Looking forward to walking with you at this event.
Lee and Don
