Description: First Day Hikes are staff led hikes, held annually on New Year’s Day and are designed to encourage visitors to enjoy state parks year round and to promote good health and exercise by working off those calories gained during the holidays.
Massachusetts state parks began offering First Day Hikes over 20 years ago and the Northeast State Park Directors are encouraging park systems across the United States to replicate the activity. Kanawha State Forest has taken up the challenge. Join assistant Superintendent, Kevin Dials, Ken Long and Tom Turner at 2:00 pm at the swimming pool parking lot. Bundle up and start the year year right – hike! Contact: 304-558-3500.
