New Year's Day: Park it (NOT on the Couch)

Join the First Day Hikes celebration at a state park Jan. 1
By Lynda Wheatley | Dec. 18, 2021

Resolve to start your New Year off right: Whatever time you get up, get outside and hike, run, snowshoe, cross-country ski, or even straddle your horse or fat-tire bike for the nation’s First Day Hikes celebration. America’s State Parks are the hosts, and they’ve got hundreds of self-guided routes and distances you can use to put your best foot forward on New Year’s Day. The ultimate goal? 2,022 miles of course. (And if a nation of hungover people can’t manage to tally that together in 24 hours, we’ve got bigger problems than ignoring our parks.) RSVP for the virtual event in our Great Lakes State by searching “First Day Hikes” at Michigan.gov.
