First Day Hike at Catharine Valley Trail

January 1 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM


Looking forward to a fresh start in 2022? Why not plan for something fun on New Year’s Day!

Celebrate the new year in the outdoors with a First Day Hike at one of the many events across the state and nation. The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (State Parks) and the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) invite New Yorkers to kick off 2022 by participating in one of the many hikes being held at state parks, historic sites, wildlife areas, trails, and public lands across the Empire State.

The walks and hikes are family-friendly, and typically range from one to five miles depending on the location and conditions. The Friends of the Catharine Valley trail have planned an event starting at Fairgrounds Lane entrance to the Catharine Valley Trail in Watkins Glen at 10am. There is also an option to participate virtually, just RSVP to the Facebook event and post a picture on the CVT event page on January 1. Each picture posted gets entered in a drawing for prizes.
