Ring in new year with hikes at State Parks

Start your New Year off on the right (or left) foot with a First Day Hike at a State Park.

Explore history, view winter wildlife, enjoy fresh air and connect with nature at these fun, family-friendly events. First Day Hikes are a healthy way to rejuvenate with family and friends after the long holiday rush.

These free, guided hikes are usually easy to moderate in difficulty and have a wide range of miles. Hikers should dress for winter weather, wear sturdy hiking shoes or boots appropriate to the conditions and bring water and snacks.

First Day Hikes is an annual, nationwide special event co-sponsored by America’s State Parks. Last year, the event saw record participation with more than 800 hikes and 28,000 participants across all 50 states. First Day Hikes originated more than 20 years ago at the Blue Hills Reservation, a state park in Milton, Mass.
