Goliad State Park, in partnership with the Amigos of Goliad State Park, will kick off the year to better health on jan. 1 by hosting a “First Day Hike,” which is a nationwide event to raise awareness for the park system and healthy living.

“This is a time of year in which everyone is making resolutions. Why not spend more time outdoors?” said Goliad State Park Ranger, Tammy Zellner. “State Parks are one place where you can hike, bike, fish, kayak, run, bird watch, and explore.”

This initiative encourages people to discover the outdoors and the many health benefits with being active. Goliad State Park will be offering a family-friendly, guided nature hike from 1-3 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 1. The hike will begin at the park headquarters building and continue along the San Antonio River trail. Along the way, the Amigos of Goliad State Park will provide refreshments.

“Be sure to dress in layers, wear sturdy, comfortable shoes, and bring drinking water,” Zellner said. “The hike will be approximately two miles at a modest pace.”
