First day, first hike: celebrate 2023 with Oregon State Parks (California, too)

2023 oregon state parks first day hikes

You're not into the bowl games, and jumping into cold water is not your thing, so maybe a hike on New Year's Day? Oregon State Parks will happily include you on one or more guided First Day Hikes.

Two dozen state parks scattered all over Oregon are taking part in the offerings. Jill Nishball is a regional program coordinator for Oregon State Parks. She joins us to add details to locations and expectations.

First Day Hikes are available in many states; here's California's list.
