by America's State Parks

America’s State Parks First Day Hikes offer individuals and families an opportunity to begin the New Year rejuvenating and connecting with the outdoors by taking a healthy hike on January 1, 2013 at a state park. First Day Hikes offer a great way to get outside, exercise, enjoy nature and welcome the New Year with friends and family. America’s State Parks First Day Hikes launched in all 50 states on January 1, 2012.

Take part in the second year of this National Event in one of over 600 hikes all across the nation. This year we have added a map to show you all of the hikes taking place on January 1st, 2013. We hope to see you out there.
