First Day Hikes have been a tradition since the early 1990s. These guided hikes on New Year’s Day were developed for those who love the outdoors and want to start the year off right by hitting the trails and breathing in some fresh air.
These free, guided hikes are offered by the fifty state park systems of The United States every year on New Year’s Day.
Last year approximately 55,000 people rang in the New Year exploring the outdoors with over 133,000 miles traveled throughout the country on these guided hikes.
Some notable state parks that host yearly guided hikes that your campers will love, include:
- Dead Horse Point State Park, Utah
