Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism will host a First Day Hike from 2 to 4 p.m. Jan. 1 at Green Recreational Trail, 702 Country Club Road in Pratt. Hot chocolate will be served and first 120 participants will receive a T-shirt.

The hike is considered easy to moderate in difficulty. Pets are welcome as long as they are on a leash and under the control of their owner at all times.

First Day Hikes are a project of America's State Parks and designed to get people outside to exercise and enjoy nature as they welcome the new year. Hundreds of First Day Hikes are scheduled across the country.
