HIKING TRAIL

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee’s state parks are offering free, guided hikes on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.

Officials say that the free hikes will be available across the state on Jan. 1, with the exception of those taking place on Dec. 31 at David Crockett Birthplace, Harrison Bay and Radnor Lake state parks.

The hikes are designed for all ages and abilities. Parks officials say the free hikes are part of America’s State Parks First Day Hikes in all 50 states.

Other free hikes are offered throughout the year.
