Jan. 1 is less than two weeks away. Have you thought about your plans for the first day of the new year? You could start with a hangover. Or, better than that, a nice brisk walk on the Walkway Over the Hudson.

It's the First Day Hike on the Walkway Over the Hudson, starting at 2 pm Jan. 1 on both the East and West side of the Walkway. Walkers, cyclists, runners, skaters, and pets on leashes are all welcome. All participants will be entered into a raffle with a chance to win items such as annual memberships to the Walkway, Walkway apparel, and tickets to the Independence Day Fireworks Spectacular Celebration. The raffle will be held at the Walkway’s Center Overlook at 2:30 pm, once both the East side and West side groups arrive.

Give yourself the gift of health this coming year, and kick it off right with the First Day Hike on the Walkway Over the Hudson. For more information, check out their facebook page.
