Out partying too late? A good walk will help

Start 2014 on a healthy note with a New Year's Day hike at 11 a.m. at McConnell Springs, 416 Rebmann Lane. Participants will take a short hike and enjoy all of the winter sights and sounds at the park, heralded as the site where Lexington was founded. This program will be canceled in the event of threatening weather. Free. (Mcconnellsprings.org)
