Join the First Day Hike Challenge. This year, participation is easier than ever. Simply visit one of our Virginia State Parks on January 1, and then enter the contest. One entry is allowed per mailing address. Include the number in your party, the length you hiked, and some basic information. Winners will be selected by random drawing. This entry will be used to mail your Collector’s Edition First Day Hike sticker. If you don’t have a way to calculate your hiking distance, download the park’s Avenza map and the Avenza app can calculate the distance you hiked.
