Happy New Year — with the state parks

Don't have plans for the New Year's holiday? Don't worry. The Indiana Department of Natural Resources does.  
  • Begin 2013 with a New Year’s Day hike at Salamonie River State Forest.
    Hikers should meet at Hominy Ridge Shelter at 10 a.m. for a brisk walk through the gentle landscape and a cup of coffee or hot chocolate. Pets on leashes are welcome.
    The hike is sponsored by Upper Wabash Interpretive Services.
    Advance registration is appreciated. Register at (260) 468-2127.

  • Experience winter’s beauty and the romantic glow of a candlelit path at the Chain O’Lakes State Park sunset luminary walk on New Year’s Day.
    The easy, half-mile walk on Trail 3 will start at 5:30 p.m. at the Campground General Store.
    Participants can enjoy complimentary hot cocoa while supplies last.
    The luminary walk and park admission are both free.
    Chain O’Lakes State Park is at 2355 E. 75 South, Albion, 46701.
