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.
