Join a park ranger for a 1 hour guided hike at Lake Livingston State Park. You will learn about some of the plants and animals that inhabit Lake Livingston State Park and the surrounding area. This hike is part of the "First Day Hike" program in which State Parks all over the United States host a hike for New Year's Day. Last year 59 sites held 75 hikes for almost 1600 people! Join us this year and start your year off right by enjoying the outdoors. Remember: Life is Better Outside!
