Stay healthy, reduce stress, spend more time with family? We can help with all these things starting January 1 on a First Day Hike. Held in 28 Pennsylvania state parks, the guided hikes are free, and are part of a national effort to promote both healthy lifestyles and get people outdoors for year-round recreation at state parks.An invigorating walk or hike in a beautiful state park helps burn off holiday calories, cure cabin fever and spend time together with friends and family.State involvement has grown to the point where all 50 states sponsor First Day Hikes. Pennsylvanians are fortunate to have a state park within 25 miles, as well as 2.2 million acres of state forest land that they can explore. In addition to improving our quality of life and giving us places to play outdoors, state parks and the visitors they draw contribute close to a billion dollars in economic activity in nearby communities each year.The following Pennsylvania state parks are participating during daylight hours January 1, 2017:BeltzvilleCaledoniaCanoe CreekCodorusCowans GapDelaware CanalFrench CreekGreenwood FurnaceGifford PinchotJacobsburg Environmental Education CenterJennings Environmental Education CenterKeystoneKings Gap Environmental Education CenterLittle BuffaloLyman RunMoraineNescopeckNolde Forest Environmental Education CenterParker DamPine Grove FurnacePrince GallitzinPymatuningR.B.
