Conn. (WTNH) — Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) is bringing back its First Day Hikes Saturday, Jan. 1, 2022.

It’s a great way to start off the year with fresh air and exercise. You can take a walk yourself, or join an in-person hike to some of our state parks.

DEEP asks that if you’re not fully vaccinated to wear a mask outdoors when social distancing isn’t possible.
