Maine Guide Jeanne Christy will lead this First Day Hike to the summit of Bradbury Mt. Along the way you'll learn about the history of the park, species identification and tracking. This 1.5-mile hike will be up the Northern Loop Trail, and down the Switchback Trail, where hike participants will be able to get warmed with a nice cup of hot cocoa by a bonfire. Wear warm clothes and sturdy footwear. Plan on one to two hours.

This annual event, in partnership with the National Association of America's State Parks, inspired nearly 55,000 people across the country last year to collectively walk over 133,000 miles on the guided hikes, that included snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, on New Year's Day.
