On January 1, annual First Day Hikes will take place at 31 state parks and historic sites across Missouri, including Hawn State Park in Ste. Genevieve County.
The local hike begins around 1 p.m. at the Whispering Pines trailhead and is expected to end around 3 p.m.
In its ninth year, the annual event is part of America’s State Parks First Day Hike effort to give people the opportunity to start off the year with an outdoor hike.
