Washington State Parks invites the public to start the new year off with a First Day Hike on Wednesday, Jan. 1, at nearly 40 state parks across Washington. Some parks will offer more than one hike.
First Day Hikes 2020 will take place in a diverse and dramatic range of landscapes and historic features, including coastal and Puget Sound beaches, islands, waterfalls, lowland forests, lighthouses, geological points of interest and more.
Jan. 1 also is the first of 12 Washington State Parks free days taking place in 2020. Park visitors will not need to display the Discover Pass on vehicles to access state parks for the New Year’s Day activities or for other state park visits on free days.
