PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire's Division of Parks and Recreation is hosting hikers for guided trips around the state on New Year's Day.
The free "First Day Hikes" take place Tuesday in Portsmouth, Hollis, Milan, Winchester and Allentown. In Hollis, the hike includes a loop around Silver Lake State Park and a campfire with snacks and warm drinks. In Milan, participants will snowshoe or cross-country ski through Milan Hill State Park, with snacks and drinks at a newly-constructed warming hut.
Officials call it an invigorating opportunity to get outside and celebrate the new year.
