Welcome to the Outdoor Recreation Program at Vanderbilt University. Outdoor Rec offers adventures in the great outdoors for Vanderbilt students, faculty, staff and the Vanderbilt community. See our list of Upcoming Trips for details.
Nashville is close to gorgeous state parks and natural areas, making it an ideal location for weekend backpacking, spelunking, canoeing, and rafting trips. You can participate in an Outdoor Rec trip, or rent gear from Outdoor Rec to plan your own trip. Our resource library includes maps and guidebooks for local parks so you can plan a trip on your own.
Outdoor Rec is located at 2600 Children’s Way, just behind the new Vanderbilt Recreation and Wellness Center. See our map for detailed directions and for parking information.
