Join us at our Local Chapter of This National Event!
Parks statewide will host a first hike program to celebrate the national movement sponsored by America’s State Parks to have all 50 states offer first day hikes. DJTA along with Alaska State Parks and Delta Nordic Ski Club are proud to coordinate this event together. Dress warm and ready to walk. The theme of this year’s event is to be as brightly lit and festive as you can. Prizes will be awarded to best lit walkers who make the entire round trip! Not feeling festive? Please at least have a headlamp or flashlight. The route will be illuminated with ice candles!
