      Alexandria Evening Walks
      June 25
      August 27
      Septemer 24
      START POINT: Kate Waller Barrett Branch Library, 717 Queen Street,
      Alexandria, Virginia 22314
      HOURS: Register between 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m each day.
      Finish by 8:30 p.m. If you plan to walk after 7:30 p.m. in April and
      September, please remember to bring a flashlight.
      DISTANCES / TRAILS: These evening walks will consist of 10 km (6.2
      miles) trails with shorter 5 km (3.1 miles) or 6 km (3.8 miles) options
      along residential sidewalks and park trails in Old Town Alexandria.
      Trails will explore various neighborhoods, wander beside the Potomac
      River, and meander up hills that overlook Old Town. Trails are rated
      1A, with only moderate hills. Trails are mostly on pavement, although
      short segments may be on natural surfaces. Trails should be suitable
      for strollers, although wheelchairs may encounter some difficulty. For
      more detailed information about each month's trail, please check with
      the information contact. Written instructions and maps will be provided
      for each walk. Trails will not be marked.
      FEES: There is no commemorative award for these events. The fee for
      IVV Credit is $3.00. There is no fee to just walk the trail - but you
      must register and carry a start card. No refunds will be given.
      Each participant is issued a start card, which must be carried on the
      walk. Only one start card per person is issued, and it must be turned
      in at the Finish table after completing the event. Only those
      participants with a properly validated start card will be eligible for
      IVV Credit. Each trail may be completed twice per start card on the
      same day at no additional cost, provided you complete the trail within
      the stated start/finish time.
      Water is available at the Start/Finish point, and food and drink usually
      is available along the trail, but you should carry your own water on the
      walk in case of extreme weather or personal cases of dehydration.
      Littering along the trails is prohibited. The events will be held rain
      or shine. Dogs are allowed, but must be leashed at all times and
      cleaned up after by their owner. Dogs are not allowed inside the library.
      Join us for our club's monthly monthly meeting after each evening walk
      at 7:00 p.m. Following each of these evening walks, the Washington DC
      Area Volksmarching Club will hold a club meeting in the staff lounge of
      the Library. Please join us for refreshments, and help us plan upcoming
      events. In order to function effectively, the club relies on people
      like you. Join us and have an enjoyable and rewarding time.
      DIRECTIONS: From the East or West via I 95 / I 495 (Capital Beltway):
      Take Exit 177B (US-1 North/Alexandria). Continue north on US-1 for about
      10 blocks (0.8 miles) to Queen St. (2 blocks past King St.). Turn RIGHT
      on Queen St. for 2 1/2 blocks. The Library will be on your left.
      From the North via the George Washington Memorial Parkway: Take the GW
      Parkway into Old Town Alexandria. Continue on what now is called
      Washington St. for about 8 blocks from the first traffic signal at
      Slater's Lane to Princess St. Turn RIGHT on Princess St. You will be one
      block north of the library, which is on the far side of a large parking
      lot to your left.
      STREET PARKING: You can usually find parking along the streets,
      especially on blocks north and east of the library. Check signs
      carefully to determine how long you can legally park and whether you
      might be in a zone that must be cleared during rush hour.
      LOT PARKING: Please note that we have been unable to make arrangements
      to use the parking lot behind the library and the Wells Fargo Bank on
      the same block. You therefore should not park in that lot. If you
      choose to park in any other lot, you may be subject to ticketing and/or
      towing.
      FACILITIES, AMENITIES & STIPULATIONS: Restrooms and water will be
      available at the start point and at locations along the trails. Food
      also can be purchased at a number of restaurants and fast-food
      establishments along the trails.
      Everyone is welcome. Participants may walk, jog, or run. An adult must
      accompany children under 12. Pets are allowed on the trails but not in
      buildings. The city of Alexandria has leash and pet clean-up laws.
