From the Fairfax County Park Authority: Start the year off right by getting a jump start burning off those extra holiday calories. Take a hike ? literally!

On New Year’s Day, the Fairfax County Park Authority is joining with America’s State Parks and Virginia State Parks First Day Hike Programs to get you outside and on the trail. Last year more than 55,000 people rang in the New Year throughout the country on hikes. First Hike Fairfax kicks off the Park Authority’s Healthy Strides: 12 Steps for a Healthier Year for 2018, a year of healthy living ideas for you and your family.

It’s easy. It’s fun. We’ve picked 5 starter hikes at some really great parks in Fairfax County. And when we say hikes, we mean walking, jogging, biking, scenery strolling… It’s all good. Just click on the park link below to get information about each self-guided hike.

Grab a friend or family members and hike together. Share it on social media #FirstHikeFairfax. And don’t forget to take your picture and enter to win great prizes that will help you start getting active after the hike.
