Part of a national initiative to get people moving, work off those holiday pounds and savor the great outdoors, Georgia’s state parks are offering First Day Hikes on Jan. 1. Dozens of guided treks will encourage friends and families to connect with nature and each other.
Winter is an especially scenic time to enjoy the trails because the open canopy means hikers can see farther through the woods. Find ranger-led hikes on New Year’s Day at GeorgiaStateParks.org/events.
