Trail Description:
The trails for both walks are rated 1+. The trails will take you along the beach, residential, and city areas. The trails are mostly paved sidewalks, but there are some dirt shoulders which may pose a problem for baby strollers. There are some long gentle slopes which may prove challenging for wheelchairs.

Everyone is welcome to participate, and the events are free. For those that wish to receive IVV credit, the fee is $3.00.

You may walk twice in the same day on the same event for the same fee.

These events count for the earning of IVV Achievement Awards.

This walk qualifies for AVA Special Programs - Railroad Heritage credit.

As with all events, there will be no refunds to those not completing the event.

Start Card:
There is no pre-registration, and everyone must obtain a start card and pay the appropriate fee if credit is desired. All start cards must be returned at the completion of the event.

Upon your return, stamp your books if credit is desired.

Remember, only one EVENT CREDIT for the first half year, and one event credit for the second half year may be entered in the event book for each event. You may participate for DISTANCE CREDIT without limit.

There are numerous restaurants along the route, in all price ranges.
