This event uses the section of trail between the Mainland Trailhead and Military Drive Trailhead. The trail is well shaded in most areas. Volkssporters will see limestone bluffs, wildflower fields, stands of Cottonwoods and other heritage trees. Wildlife may be seen in the meadows. This event is dedicated to Lt. Col William J.
