First day hike at a Virginia state park

The Shenandoah River State Park reminds you to mark your calendar for January 1st .

Start the New Year with a visit to one of Virginia’s 42 state parks.

Take a hike to inspire that New Year’s resolution or keep fit with this family friendly activity.

First Day Hikes are an initiative by America’s State Parks and are offered throughout the country.

There are many opportunities you can choose from to create new memories and perhaps start your Trail Quest.

Visitors will receive a commemorative sticker, while supplies last.
