Ring in the new year with Washington State Parks during the annual First Day Hikes event on Jan. 1, 2024.
40+ state parks will host staff-led and self-guided hikes, snowshoe excursions, bike and trail rides, dog walks, paddle adventures and more on New Year’s Day.
Hikes will range in difficulty from paved, flat ADA-accessible trails to moderate hill climbs. A few parks will host more than one hike with options tailored to different interests and abilities. Additionally, some hikes will include fun and educational talks with rangers where you can learn about the history and natural features of the parks. All participants will receive a collectible Washington State Parks 2024 First Day Hikes pin!
