First Day Hike

Details

Start the year off on the right foot, the left foot, or any foot -- find a First Day Hike in a state park near you on New Year's Day!

First Day Hikes vary from short, leisurely nature walks through forested trails and along boardwalks to climbs into the mountains of the Chihuahuan Desert. State park staff and volunteers will guide most hikes, and will talk about native plants, animals or park history along the way.

Many walks average one to two miles long, with shorter or longer treks available. A few parks will even offer runs or paddles. There's something for everyone!
