Join Newport State Park on Jan. 1, 2019 for a First Day Hike. This is the eighth year that Wisconsin state parks have participated in this national event.
Meet at the end of Europe Bay Road at the Hotz Park at 9 am. This moderate, three-mile hike will bring hikers along Europe Lake, with rolling hills along a forested sand dune. Snowshoes are permitted, so you may wear them if the snow is deep. Poles and/or walking sticks are encouraged. After the hike, enjoy cider and hot chocolate in the Nature Center, Lot 1.
The hike may be cancelled in the event of extreme weather conditions. For more information, call the park office at 920.854.2500.
