First Day Hikes

First Day Hikes

This is Passport to Texas

You’ve heard of walking your talk…we’ll here’s a chance to hike your resolutions. Nearly all of us vow to get healthier each New Year, and with First Day Hikes, you can put your plan into action. Our state park Guide Bryan Frasier has details.

51— It’s becoming quite the tradition. Last year was out first year to participate in Texas; it’s been going on for a number of years with different State Park Systems, and last year we had more than 11-hundred people turn out on New Year’s Day – we had New year’s Day hikes in 47 of our state parks. There are even more scheduled this year. And these hikes range from all levels: challenging to very relaxed, very leisurely. There are nature hikes, birding hikes, hikes through the mountains. Hikes along boardwalks on the Gulf Coast… So whatever you like to do, or if there’s a state park near you….get out after the holidays. Maybe we overdid it a little bit with the holiday dining the little Christmas turkey and new year’s celebration….get outside and walk that off and see the beautiful scenery and enjoy the fresh air; make First Day Hikes a tradition for you and your family.

Thanks, Bryan.

That’s our show for today…with funding provided by Chevrolet, supporting outdoor recreation in Texas; because there’s life to be done.
