Ring in the New Year right with a First Day Hike on the Kiowa Trail!

State Parks Centennial logo  Join our rangers for a brisk, afterhours hike on the Kiowa Trail right as the clock strikes midnight! Participants will be hiking along a portion of the Kiowa Trail (0.8 miles one way) for around 1 hour as we share stories of the tradition of First Day Hikes and of the significance of starting fresh as the calendar turns to a new year. A shuttle will be provided for those who would prefer to walk only one way.
