Tennessee State Parks Host Free Hikes to Bring in New Year

Rock Mountain State Park

Tennessee State Parks will offer free, guided hikes at 55 state parks as part of the annual First Day Hike program across the state.

“This is a great way to start off that New Year’s resolution to be more active, and we’re glad Tennessee State Parks can offer these free hikes,” said Brock Hill, deputy commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation in a release.

The hikes are designed for all ages and abilities. Some hikes are over rugged terrain while others are nice strolls. Each hike is led by an experienced park ranger. The hikes are part of America’s State Parks First Day Hikes in all 50 states.

Information about all the hikes at Tennessee State Parks can be found at https://tnstateparks.com/about/special-events/first-day-hikes/.

Hikes feature spectacular views and informative guidance by the rangers. Visitors are encouraged to share photos of their hikes on social media with the hashtag #resolutiontohike.

Tennessee State Parks hosts five annual ranger-led hikes throughout the year. Other statewide hikes Tennessee State Parks offers include Spring Hikes in March, National Trails Day in June, National Public Lands Day in September and the After Thanksgiving Hikes the day after Thanksgiving.
