HIKING -- Here's a way to rally on New Years Day: Walk it off!
Riverside State Park in Spokane is among 13 parks in the state beckoning walkers to ring in the new year -- and celebrate the 100th year of Washington State Parks -- with a group hike.
The First Day hike begins Jan. 1 at 1 p.m. at the swinging bridge parking lot in the Bowl and Pitcher Area. Visitors will explore the Bowl and Pitcher River Trail and see the dramatic winter whitewater rapids of the Spokane River. The hike is open to participants of all ages. On-leash dogs are allowed.
State Parks’ partner and friends groups will provide hot chocolate for hike participants. Hikers are encouraged to pack water and dress according to weather conditions.
