We all have New Year resolutions and experts seem to think that how you start the year will set the tone for how the rest of the year will follow. You can get that boost you need to reach your goals in productivity, health, education, fitness or any other objective by breathing the fresh airs of New Year in the outdoors.
Discover wildlife tracks, feel the wind and the warmth of the sun or the crisp cool snow, view amazing wildlife, at the same time you get rid of those extra holiday calories with an invigorating hike at one of Colorado’s State Parks.
First Day Hikes
This 2016, instead of wasting the first day of the year lying in bed all day, recovering from the hangover, get up and take advantage of the First Day Hikes hosted in all 50 state park systems.
First Day Hikes was created to offer everyone an opportunity to begin the New Year rejuvenating and connecting with the outdoors at a state park close to home, becoming a tradition of more than 25 years old. The program was launched at the Blue Hills Reservation, a state park in Milton, Massachusetts in order to promote both healthy lifestyles throughout the year and year-round recreation at state parks.
According to the National Association of State Park Directors, nearly 41,000 people hiked 79,000 miles in state parks across the country during the 2015 First Day Hike. Inject life and increase your health from day one this 2016.
