First Day Hikes

When: Sun., Jan. 1 2012

You probably already know that the best way to sweat out all the alcohol from last night is to head outdoors and get active. What you might not know is that the government wants to help you out, with First Day Hikes. At least 10 parks across the state (and more across the nation) are offering free guided hikes today; the closest at Cheyenne Mountain State Park, just south of the Springs. Some hikes begin at 8 a.m. (Yes, seriously.) Others get rolling around 2 p.m. Whichever you pick, unless you already have an annual state parks pass, you'll need to pay a $3 to $9 per vehicle entry fee. Check parks.state.co.us for all the details. And don't forget your sunglasses. — Kirsten Akens
