JAFFREY, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire once again is part of a national initiative that encourages people to start the new year outdoors.

This is the seventh year the New Hampshire Division of Parks and Recreation has hosted free hikes on New Year’s Day as part of the “First Day Hikes” program.

Events are being held at Monadnock State Park in Jaffrey, Silver Lake State Park in Hollis, Weeks State Park in Lancaster, Wellington State Park in Alexandria and the Wentworth-Coolidge Mansion historic site in Portsmouth.

Phil Bryce, the division’s director, says the hikes are a great way to cure cabin fever and burn off extra holiday calories.
