First Day Hikes

A big thank you to everyone who helped usher in the new year by participating in 2022 First Day Hikes. The goal was for participants to collectively hike, cross-county ski, ride (horse or bike) or snowshoe 2,022 miles or more. This year's crew crushed it, with more than 1,328 registered participants logging 3,061 miles!
