4th Annual First Day Hike on New Year's Day

4th Annual First Day Hike on New Year's Day
Walkway Over the Hudson will host its annual First Day Hike at Walkway State Park on Thursday, Jan. 1, 2015. Participants of all ages and abilities are encouraged to begin the hike at either of Walkway State Park's main entrance gates in Lloyd and Poughkeepsie and to proceed to the Walkway's Center Observation Area.

The First Day Hike Program, in its fourth year, promotes both healthy lifestyles and year-round recreation at state parks. We encourage individuals and families from throughout the community to join us in welcoming the New Year with a rejuvenating hike and the opportunity to get outside and enjoy nature.

Icy conditions on the Walkway could cause postponement to a later date. Call the Walkway Park office at 845-834-2867 after 10 a.m. on Thursday, January 1, 2015 to verify that the Walkway is open and obtain postponement information if not open.
