What better way to kick off the New Year than with a visit to one of our South Carolina State Parks!

On New Year’s Day, the South Carolina State Park Service will once again be celebrating with First Day Hikes. These hikes provide a means for individuals and families to welcome the coming year in the outdoors, exercising and connecting with nature. For many it has become a tradition.

This year we will continue our #StepsInSCStateParks initiative to encourage outdoor recreation and promote overall mental and physical health and wellness. Events include traditional hikes, horseback rides, and 5Ks.

Share your 2023 First Day Hike moments with us by using #SCStateParks, #StepsInSCStateParks, and #FirstDayHikes on social media!

Visitors will receive a commemorative sticker while supplies last.
