The San Marcos River Walkers invite you to walk Spring Lake Preserve Saturday, January 12th. The AVA sanctioned event is expected to draw 200 participants from around Central Texas.

The route is two 5 km loops. One is the ADA trail of packed caliche that goes up the long hill with a gradual incline. The second route is through downtown San Marcos. The routes are suitable for strollers but may be difficult for wheelchairs. Pets are welcome but must be on a leash and clean-up is mandatory.
AVA is the American Volksport Association that has its beginnings in Germany. Many participants from Fredricksburg, Austin, San Antonio and the German communities of Central Texas participate in this popular walking event.
