The hikers make their way along the South Loup section of the Lehigh Portland Trail.

A group of more than 25 hiking and biking enthusiasts gathered at the Lehigh Portland Trails complex south of Iola Wednesday, as part of a growing New Year?s Day tradition to explore the trail system.

The group ventured to the Elks Lake cliffs, John Brown?s Cave and parts in between during the 2.5-hour journey.

Unlike years past, in which the hikers dealt with freezing temperatures, the temps Wednesday were in the 40s.
