Montana State Parks (stateparks.mt.gov) invites the public to welcome in the New Year with First Day Hikes at Montana State Parks on January 1, 2018.
Start your New Year off on the right (or left) foot with a “First Day Hike” at your local state park. Montana State Parks will offer First Day Hikes at five locations across the state. Explore history, view winter landscapes and wildlife, and let the fresh air rejuvenate you. These 1 to 3-mile, easy to moderate hikes are the perfect means for individuals and families to welcome the coming year in the outdoors, exercising and connecting with nature.
‘First Day Hikes’ is an annual, nationwide special event sponsored by America’s State Parks. Last year nearly 55,000 people, from all 50 states, rang in the New Year, collectively hiking over 133,000 miles throughout the country on the guided hikes.
Montana State Parks First Day Hike Events:
All hikers should dress appropriately for the weather, bring a water bottle, and wear sturdy boots. Foot traction devices (e.g. YakTrax) are recommended.
