Florida’s state parks are working together to get residents off on the right foot for 2014.

“First Day Hikes” is an organized program of free guided tours of the sights and scenes of our state’s beautiful public lands.

The hikes will take place on New Year’s Day, Wednesday, Jan. 1. Times will vary from park to park.

In many cases the park entrance fees are waived, in a few cases nominal fees may apply.

Hikes will last about an hour, but degree of difficulty of terrain will vary from location to location.
