The Outdoor Adventure program (OA) seeks to provide superior adventure and educational opportunities promoting active lifestyles, appreciation for the natural environment, and personal development. We seek to Inspire people through outdoor experiences, encourage groups to Discover new things, and challenge individuals to Grow.
The climbing facility is the most visible part of the Outdoor Adventure Program. The Climbing Wall, soaring at 45 feet tall, offers a variety of climbing opportunities for the novice as well as the experienced climber. We also have a new bouldering wall that gives more variety to both beginning and advanced climbers.
We have quality climbing gear, brand new harnesses, a clear view of the outdoors, and a well-trained and enthusiastic staff that can’t wait to see you; come climb with us TODAY!

We now have a full 18 hole disc golf course located at our Outdoor Adventure Center. Our course has 36 concrete tee pads; two tees on each hole for experienced and new players. The course is free to play, we rent and sell discs, and welcome anyone out to play or walk the course. All events and tournaments must be approved by Outdoor Adventure.
Each semester, we plan a variety of trips, workshops, and events for students and the surrounding community. The content of the workshops and the trip activities vary from rock climbing, to hiking, to mountain biking, and skiing. Our trips are truly the best way to encounter the program; they integrate strong elements of discovery, challenge, education, and relationship into the larger portrait of university experience. We also put together custom trips. If you're interested in planning one for your student organization, residence hall, friends, or family, we plan around your group’s personal preferences and needs.
The trail is a 5 mile circuit comprised of four different loops. The trail has been professionally designed for both bicycle and pedestrian traffic. It loops around a pond and continues along a dirt trail through a variety of woods and fields. The trail provides exciting fitness opportunities away from busy streets as well as relaxing opportunities for walks along wooded paths. It is home to a variety of wildlife that enriches the experience.
The trail is open to the public from 5:00 AM to 10:00 PM. If the trail is closed due to inclement weather or muddy conditions, the front gate will be locked.
