First Day Hike – Celebrate 2015 at the Beach!

Join us for a free, ranger-led hike at 10:00 a.m. on New Year’s Day as part of ButterflyWalk_Art_WSAmerica’s State Parks First Day Hikes initiative. First Day Hikes offer a great way to get outside, exercise, enjoy nature, and learn about south Florida ecosystems while welcoming the New Year with friends and family.

MacArthur Beach State Park has a variety of beautiful settings for year-round outdoor recreation, and the First Day Hike will offer an opportunity to explore the unique natural and cultural aspects of the Park. Visitors can listen to birds, breathe in the fresh air, discover wildlife, and feel the wind, the warmth of the sun and even the sand between their toes.

The hike will be approximately 1.75 miles long walking on wooden board walks and dirt trails and the beach. Degree of difficulty is moderate. Trails are ADA accessible, please call in advance if a beach wheel chair is needed (561-624-6950).
Plan to wear walking shoes and bring water, sunscreen, and insect spray.
