Break out your boots.
Nineteen Kansas state parks, including Cheney and El Dorado, are hosting New Year’s Day hikes.
Park rangers will lead hikers through dense woodlands, sweeping prairie grass and along the shores of lakes.
Jill Johnson, an administrator at El Dorado State Park, said the hike at her park has “lots of trees” and plenty of birds.
“This time of year we see some eagles,” Johnson said. “So (we will be) kind of just taking nature in, pretty much.”
