This activity is closed to further registration.
First Day Hikes are free, guided hikes offered each year on New Year’s Day. The hikes are intended to promote an alternate way of celebrating the New Year by going outside, getting some exercise, and enjoying local nature and history. Start your year off on the right foot by joining knowledgeable park rangers, naturalists, and volunteers in one of our County’s beautiful parks.
Join a Park Ranger on a leisurely-paced 2 mile hike through the newly built multiuse trails of the Bacon Ridge Natural Area and discover the hills at the headwaters of the South River. Warm up with hot apple cider after the hike. Participants should meet at the Severn Chapel Parking Area.
Sturdy footwear, binoculars, cameras, and a water bottle are recommended. Please dress for the weather. This program is free, but registration is required. For more information, contact Park Ranger Quinn Newbill at 410-222-6244.
