"Do you have any idea what volksmarching is? If not, here’s your chance to learn. According to the American Volkssport Association, volksmarching is “a noncompetitive 3.1 mile (5 km) or 6.2 mile (10 km) walk. It’s not a pledge walk, it’s not a race, it is a fun activity you do with a club, with your family, with your pet, or all by yourself.”
Why’s that important here? Because, at Little Buffalo State Park, this hike follows— partially, though not completely—a volksmarching trail. We leave the volksmarching trail in spots. For example, the volksmarching trail follows Little Buffalo Creek Trail for a while. And it is a pleasant walk, to be sure, following the edge of the stream. That offers the chance to see some wildlife."
