Kitchener Loop Walk 02 (8 or 12 km)

This urban walk is on a combination of community trails and a few sidewalks on the west side of Kitchener (Forest Heights/Monarch Woods). The shape of the walk is like a figure eight (8) so in actual fact the loop is really two overlapping loops. Because of the overlap participants have the option of dropping out after the first loop near where the cars are located.

The walk tends to follow natural drainage areas (Henry Sturm Creek, Detweiler Creek and Sandrock Creek). The waters from these three creeks join Schneider Creek just before Victoria Park before flowing through German Mills, Doon Heritage Crossroads, Upper Doon and Lower Doon where Schneider Creek forms a confluence with the Grand River within view of the Pioneer Tower.

In-Car GPS?

Some in-car GPS units allow you to enter the coordinates (i.e. latitude and longitude) instead of a regular street address. If you own a Garmin unit press "Where to?" and then the down arrow in the lower right corner and that takes you to "Coordinates". Press "Coordinates" and enter the latitude and longitude. For more detailed step-by-step instructions check Entering Coordinates in Recent Garmin Nüvi GPS Receivers.
