Family Solar System Walk (All Ages)

Actually called the Logan River Planet Walk, this 1.9 mile (out and back) scale model of the planets in our solar system is a great resource to our Valley! Take a family walk on a paved path by the Logan River (trailhead at Rendezvous Park near Logan River Golf Course).
Bring your smartphone and listen to podcasts about the solar system (made by local 6 th graders!) as you go. This is a self-monitored family walk. We encourage Girl Scouts to wear their vests! A main purpose of this activity is for Girl Scouts to be able to connect with each other by seeing each other along the path and saying hello!
