Fort Stevens State Park is once again proud to be a part of this annual tradition.  The hike will be held at the historic Fort Stevens military site.  It’s open to all ages and pets on leashes.  Expect the hike to last about 35-45 minutes across an easy, mile long, natural surface trail.  Restrooms are available near the main parking lot.  The museum and store will not be open for business.  It isn’t uncommon to see elk, eagles, winter time birds, or the occassional cargo ship passing by.  Enjoy the first day of the year with us.  Make it a part of your family’s new years tradition.  Visit the link below to learn more about the first day hikes and the America’s State Parks organization that started it all.
