Mason Neck State Park is celebrating the new year with free entrance to the park and three guided hikes.
At 10 a.m. is a 3.5 mile hike of moderate difficulty but at an easy pace.
At 11 a.m. the park will feature a fast-paced, heart pumping hike incorporating several trails that will cover 6.2 miles. (That’s 10K for those who are metric system challenged!)
At 3 p.m. is a leisurely stroll on the Bay View Trail covering 1.0 miles and at an easy pace.
Of course you are always welcome to hike on your own. Mason Neck is a dog friendly park! You must have your four legged friend on a leash at all times.
The Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation also is sponsoring a New Years Challenge and and a First Day Hikes Photo Contest. Prizes of up to $500 will be awarded to the winners. More information is available at http://bit.ly/vspfdh2018.
So come out to the park on January 1 and get a good start to the year!
