      Start Point Address / Driving Directions:
      Odenton Shopping Center, 1103 Annapolis Road, Odenton, MD, phone
      410-672-1888 From the West. From the Baltimore Washington Parkway (I-295),
      take MD Route 175 east, toward Odenton. Continue straight for approximately
      5.8 miles, passing Fort Meade on your right, passing under MD Route 32, and
      crossing the intersection with MD Route 170. At the next traffic signal
      (Shell Gas Station on your left, Crown Gas Station on your right) turn right
      into the parking lot of the Odenton Shopping Center (Super Fresh market is
      the main store in the shopping center). At the top of the hill, turn left
      and drive along the front of the stores to the far end of the parking lot.
      The Premier Health & Fitness Club will be straight ahead. From the East.
      From MD Route 3, take Maryland Route 175 west, toward Odenton. At the
      traffic circle, go ½ way around and continue on MD Route 175. At the next
      traffic signal (McDonald’s and Dairy Queen on your right) turn left into the
      parking lot of the Odenton Shopping Center (Super Fresh market is the main
      store in the shopping center). At the top of the hill, turn left and drive
      along the front of the stores to the far end of the parking lot. The Premier
      Health & Fitness Club will be straight ahead.


      Event Description: The trails are mostly in the open, on the blacktop WB&A
      Trail and sidewalks through the local communities, with a short section on
      road shoulder. There are some moderately steep hills to negotiate. Many of
      the sidewalks do not have cutouts. These sections, and the hills, could
      present some difficulty for strollers and moderate difficulty for
      wheelchairs. This is the first opportunity to walk this section of the
      Washington, Baltimore & Annapolis Recreational Trail on a sanctioned
      volksmarch. The WB&A Railroad was an electric line serving a commuter
      function, with trains running every ½ hour between destinations. It began
      service in 1908. Long abandoned, the last train ran in 1935. Today, the
      beautiful semi-rural corridor provides an ideal site for a recreational
      trail. CBCW will be bringing you events on additional sections of this
      trail, as they are completed. Watch for brochures at local volkssport events
      or check our web site.


      Start Times: 9 am to 1 pm, both days
