Mark your calendar for a visit to Great Plains State Park on January 1 for a free guided hike. Meet at the comfort station of the Mountain Shade Campground at 11am for an easy, one-mile walk on the paved surface. For a moderately more difficult hike, meet at the park office at 12:30 to hike the Granite Hills Trail. Leashed pets are welcome, and be sure to bring binoculars, a camera, water and appropriate dress for a cool-weather hike.

The event is in conjunction with the America's State Parks First Day Hikes initiative that will take place in all 50 states.  The First Day Hikes offer individuals and families an opportunity to begin the New Year rejuvenating and connecting with the outdoors by taking a healthy hike on the first day of the new year.
