Treat yourself at the end of the semester with the Outdoor Rec’s Adventure Road Trip! This May we are off to the New River Gorge, WV for some incredible hikes, pristine climbing, and adrenaline pumping white water rafting. On the way to “the New” we will be hiking through Grayson Highlands, keeping an eye out for the wild ponies that live there, and then summiting Mt. Rogers (5,729 ft), the highest point in Virginia! From there, we continue to the New River Gorge National River.  Once there we drive across the New River Gorge Bridge, the longest steel span in the western hemisphere and third tallest in the US, to hike along the picturesque gorge wall and down to a coal mine ghost town. Rock climbing and a full day of rafting on class II-V rapids will fill the rest of our time in this gorge-ous place (yes, pun intended). This trip is bound to have a great mix of excitement, relaxation, and a ton of photo ops!   This trip is limited to the first 9 people who sign up!

Estimated trip duration: 7 am Fri. – 10 pm Wed.

Cost includes: Van transportation from Vanderbilt and back, group equipment, climbing equipment, in-camp food, camping fees, whitewater rafting fees, and park entrance fees.        Bottom of Form
