If you’re committed to making 2019 a year of healthy living, why not start the year off on the right foot with a hike?

And it just so happens that Ontario Parks are hosting First Day Hikes, which are a fun and healthy way to kick off the New Year.

This January 1, you can either take a self-guided hike with your friends and family or visit a park hosting a guided hike. Either way, you’ll feel great after a day spent outside with your loved ones.

If you’re interested in joining a guided park hike, here are some the provincial parks hosting events on New Year’s Day.

Park Time Meeting place
Kakabeka Falls 1:30 pm Main falls parking lot
Lake Superior 1 pm Noisy Bay trailhead
MacGregor Point 2 pm Administration building
Murphys Point 1 pm The main winter parking lot
Sibbald Point All day Maidenhair Fern Trail parking lot
Silent Lake 1 pm Bonnie’s Pond trailhead

The best part? Ontario Parks is giving away three 2019-2010 seasonal day use permits to participants in First Day Hikes.

All you need to do is a post a photo on social media during your hike with the hashtag #FirstDayHike and tag Ontario Parks.

During the winter months, Ontario Parks will have 26 provincial parks open for the season, so visitors can enjoy classic activities like hiking, skating, skiing and snowshoeing, take part in a special family event or stay overnight in cozy roofed accommodations.
