Celebrate the New Year with the “First Day Hike” at a State Park

JACKSON - Start the New Year off right by connecting to the outdoors and getting some exercise with a "First Day Hike" at a state park. Staff at both Tishomingo and Trace State Parks will host guided hikes beginning at 10 a.m. on January 1, 2014.  Hikers at Tishomingo State Park will meet at the Loochapola Lodge, and hikers at Trace State Park will meet at the Jason M. Stewart Memorial Trail.

 

In addition to guided hikes, all state parks and trails will be open to the public on New Year's Day for recreation and nature viewing.  Mississippi's state parks offer 21 nature trails and provide visitors with unique, affordable opportunities to get outdoors with family and friends. Set a goal to visit a park and try a new activity in 2014.
