The Dayton Bluffs Preserve is holding its 4th Annual First Day Hike on New Years Day 2023. First Day Hikes are held in many parks throughout the country in an effort to help people “start the year off on the right foot.” Begun in Massachusetts in 1992, the concept of a First Day Hike went nationwide in 2012. Dayton Bluffs Preserve has held a First Day Hike since 2019.
