Take a First Day Hike on January 1, 2024

Start a new tradition and take a First Day Hike with your family on New Year’s Day. 

On New Year’s Day, America’s State parks will once again celebrate First Day Hikes. These hikes provide a means for individuals and families to welcome the new year in the outdoors, exercising and connecting with nature. For many it has become a tradition.
