Venture Outdoors provides a calendar of outdoor outings all year long so that your physical activity only transforms with the changing weather, and is not inhibited by it.  The events, like hiking, paddling, biking, snowshoeing, and much more, are always full of people to get to know as you enjoy nature together. Events in the past have included: Hot Cocoa Snowshoeing, Women’s Level 1 – Cross Country Skiing, and Oakland Top to Bottom – Urban Fitness Hike.   

The locations vary – county and state parks and state forests are frequently used. The current activities calendar is always available online, and it’s best to reserve in advance as activities do fill up.  After you make your reservation, you will receive a confirmation email with a checklist of items to bring, if any.  You can always count on needing good sporty shoes or hiking shoes, as well as layered clothes because you never know what could happen with the weather.

There are memberships available which provide discounts on events.  Some outings are pet-friendly.
