Description: The Albany Fitwalkers club formed in 1987 did their first AVA sanctioned walk in summer of 1988. This walk is dedicated to that walk and follows much of the same path. A bonus will be to walk by the new, but historic carousel with its hand caved animals. This walk also has as many challenges as any walk in the north west.
