Celebrate the New Year with a First Day Hike, and join knowledgeable Park Rangers, Naturalists and volunteers in one of our County’s beautiful parks.

Join Ranger Terri at Lake Waterford Park to explore the trail around the lake, or join Ranger Felipa at Fort Smallwood Park for a low impact hike with stunning views of the Patapsco River. Stick around and warm up with complimentary hot cocoa afterwards. Want to get off the beaten path? Join Ranger Chris at Weinberg Park on Rock Creek or Ranger Nick at the Magothy Greenway Natural Area and explore the natural surface trails in these hidden gems.

With hikes scheduled at 10 park locations this year, and held throughout the day, we hope you can join us and start your New Year off on the right foot! To view all our FREE First Day Hikes, and to register online, visit bit.ly/firstdayhikes2023
