First Day Hikes 2015

First Day Hikes 2014California State Parks invites the public to start 2015 in a healthy way by connecting to nature, and what better way to do so than participating in the third annual First Day Hikes.  California is a leader in the national First Day Hikes program, in which state parks in all 50 states participate.

This year, there will be more than forty (40) California state parks hosting more than forty-five (45) hikes and outings on New Year's Day. Visitors can enjoy hikes across the state, from the redwoods, the deserts and along the coast and beaches.  These hikes are varied in both scale and rigor, are events designed for the whole family.

Visitors can take a paddle on a quiet lagoon, share poetry by the seashore, and learn history about author Jack London or humorist/cowboy Will Rogers. Hikers can look for whales, bird watch or just get some healthy exercise in the outdoors.
