Hike Minnesota's Mystery Cave for free on New Year's Day

Utah State Parks is kicking off 2018 with another installment of their Annual First Day hikes on New Year's Day.

Tobey said 22 people - the maximum number - have signed up for the 5-mile paddle from Current River State Park to Round Spring.

In Minnesota, parks scheduled to be involved on Monday range from Lake Bemidji State Park in the north to Forestville/Mystery Cave State Park in the southeast.

Mr. Terry said he's been leading First Day Hikes at Fort Macon for the last two or three years.

Ring in the new year with some quality and complimentary guided outdoor time.

Hikes are slated at state parks, historic sites, wildlife areas and trails across New York State.

That's prompted organizers of the New Year's Eve Ball Drop to make some changes.

"We've grown steadily each year", he said. See all snowshoeing opportunities by region here.

But in that case, she said, disappointed hikers can always return to the park on January 31 for the next full moon hike, which is held several times a year.

The Division of Parks and Forestry manages about 450,000 acres of land, including 40 state parks and forests.

All 24 hikes in 22 OR state parks will be guided by park rangers OR volunteers who will share stories about a park's geology, history, wildlife and plants.

There are countless benefits to using Michigan's state parks, trails and waterways as your gym, such as burning calories while snowshoeing the many hundreds of miles of trails across the state.

All participants should dress appropriately for the winter mornings and wear sturdy shoes, bring a jacket, and water.
