The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) is partnering with America's State Parks to offer free guided First Day Hikes in state parks across Oregon on New Year's Day, including Cottonwood Canyon State Park, the state's newest.

Hike time is 12 noon to 1 p.m. starting at the Pinnacles Trailhead. The two-mile hike follows an old rocky road bed and is relatively flat.

Details of the hike are available on the Oregon State Parks website—go to, or call 541-394-0002.

OPRD is asking participants to share photos of their First Day Hike via social media by using the Twitter hashtag
