You know how there are only two real seasons in the Midwest: Winter and Construction Season? Well, our scheduled walk for September will not take place at Standing Bear Lake because they have closed the trails just west of our Start Point. We’ll have to reschedule this walk for another year.
Our September 19th walk will start at the Subby Anzaldo/Columbus Park at 1329 S. 24th Street. Registration and walk from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m, please be off the trail by 2 p.m. From the Subby Anzaldo Columbus Park, this trail leads through the historic Field Club neighborhood, President Gerald Ford birthsite and Hanscom Park, Omaha’s first public park. The 10k trail extends this walk along a portion of the Field Club Trail. Bring a mask and maintain social distancing guidelines as you complete your registration. Fun Walkers pay $2 and Credit Walkers (book stampers) $3 – please use exact change or write a check to “NWFT” and have the payment sealed in an envelope. Dogs on leashes and strollers welcome; the trail to/from Columbus Park and through Hanscom Park is hilly.
