PRATT, Kan. (AP) _ A Kansas agency is urging residents to start the New Year by taking a hike.

The Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism says that several state parks will offer guided walks on Jan. 1. It's part of the national First Day Hikes program, sponsored by America's State Parks and the American Hiking Society.

Kansas Parks Division director Linda Lanterman says that special programs are also scheduled at the state parks.

A full list of participating parks is available on the agency's website. Among them are Clinton State Park, near Lawrence, where pets are also invited to hike, and Elk City State Park near Independence, which will also hold a 5K run-walk.

Tuttle Creek State Park, near Manhattan, will host a walk-through 3-D archery shoot starting at 1 p.m.
