Walk Route Details
The Out of the Darkness Community Walk follows the bike trail near Morrison Park. The route is roughly 3 miles and is flat. We start near the children’s play area.
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.
