The North Pocono Trails Association’s fifth annual “Volksmarch,” a traditional German-themed community walk/hike that’s been growing in popularity since its inception, will take place Sunday in Moscow.

Co-sponsored by the Lackawanna River Conservation Association, the event will feature a longer and shorter hike.

The 6-mile hike will commence at Centennial Park at 1 p.m. and proceed to the trailhead near Old Mill Park on Market Street. From there, the hike will continue on the North Pocono Community Trails and then borough streets before concluding at the Moscow Borough Building.

The 3-mile hike will be easier and take place on flat terrain, allowing hikers to enjoy the natural beauty of Roaring Brook and the hemlock groves throughout the trails. That hike starts at 1:10 p.m.
