'First Day Hike' to be held Jan. 1 at Enchanted Rock

State parks in Texas will celebrate First Day Hike, which will be from 9-11 a.m. on New Year’s Day.

Leading the charge will be Enchanted Rock. Park authorities are encouraging residents to begin 2014 with “one of the most spectacular views in Texas” at the rock.

Hikers can begin at the gazebo near the trailhead to the summit.

Officials say the hike can be a little challenging, but all are invited to take up the challenge and get in some exercise. They are encouraged to bring water.
