Lincoln Volkssport Club 5 & 10 Kilometer Volksmarch

Wyuka Cemetery
3600 "O" St.

Join the Lincoln chapter of the American Volkssport Association for their annual October Volksmarch, starting in Lincoln's historic Wyuka Cemetery. The trail will be through Wyuka and the surrounding neighborhood. The trail is mostly on paved or cobblestoned roads. This trail is suitable for wagons, wheelchairs and strollers with some difficulty.

Set yourself a walking goal! The walk is designed to be 5K or 10K, however feel free to cover whatever distance you desire. Wyuka's Autumn foliage should be in full color, so feel free to roam, take in your surroundings, and let your mind wander, much like Harold Fry on his walking journey across England.

[ Print out the informational brochure for this walk ]
