First Day Hikes 2021

Utah State Parks is kicking off 2021 with another installment of our annual First Day Hikes on New Years Day.

This year is slightly scaled back, as we are hosting hikes at two different state parks: Antelope Island State Park and Kodachrome Basin State Park.

Check out information on the two different hikes below for more information. Be mindful of weather conditions. Bring the appropriate gear, water, snacks, and clothing. Remember to always practice #ResponsibleRecreation!
