First Day Hikes (Get Outdoors on New Year’s Day!)

First Day Hikes
“Kick-start your New Year’s resolution to keep in shape with an invigorating First Day Hike at a state park near you! All 50 states are participating in the fourth annual national event that invites families to celebrate the New Year with guided outdoor adventures. Last year, more than 27,000 people covered around 66,000 miles on 885 hikes in state parks across the country.”
The only Illinois State Park participating in First Day Hikes, a program promoted by the nation’s State Parks is one of our favorite places to visit, Starved Rock, not too far from home but a place that gives us a completely unique experience each time we go. The hike will be to the top of Starved Rock and into French Canyon, 2 miles, about 1 1/2 hours. Hopefully they’ll see some Bald Eagles from the top of Starved Rock. Afterwards, if we go, we’ll camp for a night at the campground, better prepared for winter camping this time than we were over Thanksgiving. Should be a great way to start the New Year!
