Walk The Line

Sunday June 26th 7-9PM

Join us for an endurance picnic. Our journey will take us 5.25 miles from Milwaukee Junction to the old Central Train Station in Southwest Detroit on a route that’s seldom traversed on foot. Be sure to wear comfy walking shoes and bring water and a small snack. We will meet underneath the E Grand Blvd Bridge (In the overflow parking for the Milwaukee Lofts). Look for the intersection of Milwaukee and Wetherbee St.

Don’t worry, we gotchya: we will have a couple vehicles at the end of the walk to help transport people back to the starting point.
