DNREC's Division of Parks and Recreation will sponsor free, guided hikes in eight state parks on New Year's Day, as part of America's State Parks' First Day hikes initiative.
First Day Hikes originated more than 20 years ago at the Blue Hills Reservation, a state park in Milton, Massachusetts. The program was launched to promote both healthy lifestyles throughout the year and year-round recreation at state parks.
Hikes will be offered at the following locations and times:
10 a.m. Alapocas Run State Park, Wilmington; 1 p.m. Bellevue State Park, Wilmington; 2 p.m. Brandywine Creek State Park, Wilmington; 11 a.m. Cape Henlopen State Park, Lewes; 1 p.m. Delaware Seashore State Park, Rehoboth Beach; 1 p.m. Killens Pond State Park, Felton; 10 a.m. Trap Pond State Park, Laurel; 1 p.m. White Clay Creek State Park, Newark.
