First Day Hike: Tygart
January 1, 2024 All day
A hike on the School Bus Loop Trail on January 1, 2024 gets attendees up and moving into the new year. Join naturalist Jacob Jackson at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, January 1, 2024 for the annual First Day Hike at Tygart Lake State Park. Meet at the Campground.
The hike is about two miles round trip and should conclude on or before noon. Arrival to the campground 10 or so minutes prior to the hike is encouraged. Jackson says to dress for the weather and wear sturdy boots or hiking shoes. If you have or use a walking stick or poles it doesn’t hurt to bring them along.
The First Day Hike is open to the public and at no cost. Children are welcome but must bring an adult with them on the hike. Leashed and well behaved furry friends are also welcome.
First Day Hikes are part of a nationwide initiative led by America’s State Parks to get people outdoors, with hikes scheduled in all 50 states. Kids and adults across America can participate in First Day Hikes, getting their hearts pumping and enjoying the beauty of a state park.
