The Fall 2022 Ten Toes Season is kicking off Thursday, September 1st and running for 12 full weeks! Throughout the season, we have special walks that are designed to tour great destinations throughout the St. Louis region via transit and your own ten toes. These special walks can range from 1.5-4 miles. Special walks typically also include a spot for lunch or snack before heading back home.
Our walk leaders are eager to start the season with familiar and new walkers. Special walks have a limit capacity, so please RSVP if interested in either of the four special walks.
