Join Us for a Guided Walk this Spring!
The spring weather should be just right for a walk along the edge of the
Southeast Greenway. The Greenway is greener than we’ve seen it for years! You may be surprised that this land hosts three creeks, many oak and walnut trees, and wide swaths of open space that provide great views of Taylor and Bennett Mountains.

Meet walk leaders in the parking lot near the tennis courts at Montgomery High School. This walk is about 2.5 miles round trip on city streets and sidewalks, with stops to view important features. Terrain is mostly flat but includes one fairly steep hill. Remember to bring hats, water, snacks, sunglasses, a light jacket and anything you might enjoy on an urban walk.
