Event comments

The Volksmarch routes make use of the City’s parks, existing trail system, city sidewalks and local streets. The trails and sidewalks are improved (paved) and meander through mostly flat unforested areas (not much overhead cover). The trail is rated 1-A due to minor inclines and improved paths with few obstacles. The route is of moderate difficulty for wheelchairs or strollers. The Volksbike route makes use of the City’s parks, streets and existing trail system, to include The Singing Sands Trail.
