“The start of the new year is the perfect time to leave the hectic holiday pace behind and embrace the outdoors with a walk or hike in New York’s breathtaking scenic settings,” said State Parks Commissioner Rose Harvey. “First Day Hikes are a family-friendly tradition that offers a fresh seasonal perspective of our state’s natural treasures and the vast opportunities open year-round at State Parks.”
