MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A number of Wisconsin state parks and forests will offer guided New Year’s Day hikes.

America’s State Parks and American Hiking Society are teaming up with state parks around the country to promote so-called First Day Hikes as a healthy way to start 2015.

The hikes will be offered at a number of state parks, including Buckhorn, Devil’s Lake, Mirror Lake, Harrington Beach, Whitefish Dunes and Peninsula as well as in selected areas of the Kettle Moraine State Forest and the Richard Bon State Recreation Area.

The state Department of Natural Resources says 190 people hiked nearly 606 miles at nine different state park properties on New Year’s Day 2014.
