The Out of the Darkness Community Walk follows the bike path at Pioneer Park out to 1st Ave and back. The route is roughly 3 miles and is fairly flat. We start at the Playground Picnic Shelter near and children’s play area toward the center of Pioneer Park.
The route is not technically challenging, has very little elevation change, and is wheelchair friendly throughout the majority of its length. If you or members of your team would like to attend the walk and be a part of the day’s events but do not wish to actually walk for physical or other concerns, there will be volunteers and attendees who remain at the staging area to welcome the volunteers back.
