The Seneca Valley Sugarloafers Volksmarch Club is sponsoring a Frederick Oktoberfest Walk on Saturday, Sept. 28. The 6km/10km trails, rated 2A, go through Historic Frederick and along Carroll Creek Park. The 10km continues on tree-lined trails, over several types of bridges, through other Frederick Parks and on paths in Hood College on sidewalks and roadsides. The trails are user friendly for wagons, wheelchairs and strollers, though some difficulty may be encountered where there are no curb cuts.
The Start/Finish point is at the Frederick Fairgrounds, 797 E. Patrick Street, Frederick. The start table is located within the fairgrounds beyond the entrance to Gate 1 for the Oktoberfest. Volksmarch parking is across from Gate 1 of the fairgrounds. Parking is free but you may make a donation to the Rotary Interact Club volunteers from local high schools.
The walk is free; Volksmarch credit is $3. The start time is between 9 a.m. and noon. Participants must finish by 3 p.m. Restrooms are available at the Start/Finish point and along the trail. No pets are permitted at the fairgrounds. Walkers will enjoy free entry into Frederick’s Oktoberfest!
