Enjoy First Day Hike to celebrate the new year
Lake Carlos State Park near Alexandria invites the public to start the year off with a First Day Hike at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, January 1 at the park. Hikers will meet at the Lake View Group Camp and head out from there.
A naturalist will take participants out on a winter adventure to see the sights: a frozen lake, a snow swept prairie or a few snow-covered trees.
While exploring, participants will also learn about the history of the park, its natural resources and cultural significance.
Participants are invited to join the guided hike or participate in sledding, snowshoeing, skiing or other snow activities.
Dress appropriately for the weather and bring snowshoes or a camera if desired.
The park will have snowshoes for rent. Registration is required for renting snowshoes.
To register or for more information, call (320) 852-7200.
