The Start the Year Right hike is held annually by the Johnny Appleseed Metropolitan Park District within the first week of the new year.  Hikers followed one of several nature trails within Kendrick Woods, looking at the trees and finding wildlife.  Those with the metro park district say it's always great to see so many people taking part in the hike every year.

"It’s always surprising how many people are crazy enough to be out here at this time of year in this temperature, it’s cold, but we know how to deal with it and I think that people are more resilient than we think sometimes," said Dan Hodges, a naturalist with Johnny Appleseed Metropolitan Park District.  "We can be out here, it’s cold, but we'll deal with it and it’s definitely worth it to be out in such a beautiful place as Kendrick Woods."

Around 10 hikers participated in this year's hike.
