First Day Hike 2023

As we have in the past, Newport joined with many other parks around Wisconsin and the nation and hosted a First Day Hike on January 1st. It is the perfect way to ring in the New Year! 

Coordinated by Mark Glasser, a record number of people enjoyed hiking the Fern Trail on this year’s event. Conditions were mild and there was no snow cover on the trail. Many hikers were experiencing the new section of elevated boardwalk for the first time.
