Start the New Year with an Inspiring “First-Day Hike”

State Parks get Georgians moving in 2015


Since New Year’s resolutions often include exercise, Georgia’s State Parks and Historic Sites are offering ways to make the goal more fun. Those wishing to increase their metabolism and decrease their waistline are invited to start 2015 with a healthy walk in the woods. Dozens of parks have planned ranger-led hikes as part of the national “First Day Hikes” movement sponsored by America’s State Parks.

From easy family-friendly strolls to more challenging treks, Georgia’s State Parks offer a variety of choices for “First Day Hikes.”  Some focus on history, such as walks through Civil War camps or to ancient Indian mounds.  Others highlight geologic wonders, such as Tallulah Gorge.  A list of all hikes can be found on and a map of all locations can be found at
Those who want to celebrate a peaceful New Year’s Eve in nature can reserve one of Georgia State Parks’ cozy cabins, heated yurts, lodge rooms, or modern campsites with hot showers.  For reservations, call 1-800-864-7275 or book online at
