TYPE: Weekly (Sunday) | PACE: Conversational | TERRAIN: Mixed pathway | DISTANCE: Approx. 4 mi
Walk Description: Didn’t you always love having a casual easy-goin’ Sunday morning that included a good old fashioned diner? We’re going to recreate the Sunday stroll with a 4-mile mosey circling through the 5 parks of Glendale, and finishing with a great Sunday brunch at Caitlin’s Diner. Of course, the brunch is optional – but I know I'll always be there! All doggies are welcome – even at Caitlin’s! Yes, doggies are welcome on their deck so they’ve welcomed our furry friends. This walk will also be baby stroller friendly. This walk is relaxed, casual, and fun as we explore the parks, pathways – even pancakes — of Glendale!

-This walk is super duper duper doggie friendly! We will be doing a loop going back to our starting location. (Please be sure you are confident your dog can handle 3-4 miles and cooler temps when walking in fall and winter and ensure that your dog is calm, well behaved and MUST stay leashed. Please be sure to bring baggies.)

-Consider Bringing: Comfortable socks & shoes (pref. non-cotton socks), light backpack with water and snack foods (almonds, bars, fruit), gloves, scarf, beanie, camera, sunglasses & sunscreen (and hat if you wear them), and bring many (thinner) layers depending on anticipated temperature and light rain gear just in case.
