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. (It is easier for me to reply to a text than to answer the phone during a work day, but please do feel free to call or text, and do leave a message if I cannot answer.)
Schedule & Parking: We will meet at 8:30 am just outside the front doors of the Aurora Central Library. There is plenty of parking in the lot. We’ll introduce ourselves, and answer questions before the walk. Please plan to arrive slightly before 8:30 am as we will leave NO LATER than 8:35 am. We should be done walking no later than 10:00 am. The library opens at 8, so the restroom will be available before the walk starts.
- Dogs welcome: We will be walking a loop going back to our starting location. Please consider whether your dog can handle 4 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 is only one restroom, at the library, and it will be available before the walk, as the library opens at 8.
- 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. Do bring a camera, we often see wildlife (rumor has it a bald eagle frequents the route).
RSVP: You can RSVP a few ways 1) Here 2) On Meetup or 2) Texting Robin at 720-341-2295. If you RSVP on Meetup, when I cancel a walk you will get an email notification that I have done so. Be sure to check your email for a cancellation notice.
You are welcome to text me in the morning to check status or confirm the walk is going. But remember, no news is good news. We go unless otherwise notified. A little weather does not bother me, and I love walking in the rain, but bitter cold and wind does not make for a fun walk.
