The Seneca Valley Sugarloafers Volksmarch Club is sponsoring a seasonal, self-guided Urbana, Get Your U! seasonal walk from through Sunday, Dec. 29. There are 5km, 6km, 10km and 11km trails.
The 5km trail (rated 2A) goes to the old part of Urbana, Urbana District Park and through some of the Villages of Urbana (celebrating their 20-year anniversary in 2019). The 10km trail (rated 2B) trail includes more of the Villages of Urbana and some woods, walking on paved and natural surfaces and a muddy section (really hard for strollers; wear hiking boots or old tennis shoes). The 6km (rated 2A) and 11km (rated 2B) trails take you to the “site” of the old Peter Pan Restaurant, an indelible memory to any who lived in the general area during the 1960s and 70s.
Walkers must register at the “Start Box” at Giant Food, 3530 Sugarloaf Parkway, Frederick. This walk is scheduled during daylight hours only. The walk is free; Volksmarch credit is $3. Restrooms are available in Giant Food and other places noted in the walking instructions. Pets are allowed, but must be leashed at all times during the walk; participants must clean up after them. Pets are not allowed in the shops or other buildings unless otherwise noted.
