First Day Hikes

First Day Hikes

Another year of First Day Hikes has come and gone. This year was filled with guided activities from coast to coast and included sunrise hikes, hikes on new trails, polar plunges, horseback rides, bike rides, paddles, and so much more! If you joined us for an activity this year, thank you for starting the New Year off on the right foot.

This year we had 1339 guided hikes and other activities held. Over 66,000 participants joined us on First Day Hike events and 138,924 miles were covered! America’s State Parks hoped to make 2024 a record-breaking year and they did. They reached two major milestones: surpassing 1 million miles hiked and 500,000 participants during First Day Hikes 2024.

Check back here later this year for information regarding our 2025 First Day Hikes to help keep the momentum going!
