FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - If you have a New Year's resolution to get healthier, four Kentucky parks are offering a good way to get started.
All four are offering guided hikes on Jan. 1 as part of a national effort called First Day Hikes to promote healthy lifestyles. The participating parks are Cumberland Falls State Resort Park in Corbin, E.P. "Tom" Sawyer State Park in Louisville, Lake Barkley State Resort Park in Cadiz and Natural Bridge State Resort Park in Slade.
The state parks in Kentucky have more than 250 miles of hiking trails and many also offer other recreation, such as horseback riding, camping, golf, fishing and boating.
