Iowa DNR wants people to take a hike

The Department of Natural Resources is encouraging Iowans to start the new year off on the right foot.  Officials say free, guided hikes will be available in 26 Iowa state parks on New Year's Day as part of the "America's First Day Hikes" initiative.  People in all 50 states will welcome 2018 by exploring their state's outdoor beauty in the 7th annual national event.  More than 1,200 hikers enjoyed Iowa trails on New Year's Day this year.
