SACRAMENTO – Looking to burn off some holiday calories and start the new year on the right foot? California State Parks invited the public to absorb the wonders of nature with a First Day Hike on New Year’s Day. Dedicated docents, volunteers and staff provided about 50 hikes at state parks throughout California. “First Day Hike creates opportunities to connect with families, friends and communities,” Lisa Mangat, director of California State Parks, said. “Public outdoor places support healthy, affordable, physical and social activities. California’s state parks are a gateway to these benefits. Come join staff, docents and volunteers as well as fellow outdoor enthusiasts to welcome the new year.” This is the 10th year California has participated in the First Day Hikes
