To kick off the 100th anniversary of the Iowa state park system in 2020, join the staff and Friends of Lake Manawa on a free, guided hike on New Year’s Day. Hikers can meet at 9 a.m. at the Park Office in the park for a 2-mile hike led by park staff.
“First Day Hikes are the inaugural events of the centennial celebration, and we are so excited to spend this time outdoors with our visitors,” said Todd Coffelt, Parks, Forests, and Preserves bureau chief at the DNR. “Even if you have never been on a winter hike or visited a state park, we invite you to join us for this special opportunity to exercise, enjoy nature, and welcome the New Year with friends and family.” At Lake Manawa State Park, hikers can expect to be surrounded by the quiet beauty of nature in winter, and experience spectacular views, beautiful settings and the cultural treasures offered by Iowa’s state parks.
