Dartmouth Outing Club
MUD SEASON! Please try to stay off hiking trails until they dry up from mud season. Typically May 15th has been the general standard for the opening of trails for the snowless seasons. Although, as we all know, some years the landscape dries quickly and in others we have rainy periods that keep the trails looking like sloppy pudding. When heading out to enjoy a trail, please use your judgement.
About the Dartmouth Outing Club
The Dartmouth Outing Club (DOC) was originally formed in 1909 to “stimulate interest in out-of-door winter sports”, and quickly grew to encompass the College’s year-round out-of-doors recreation. The club has undergone constant evolution over the course of its 104-year history to meet the ever-changing needs of its members.
Today the club has over 1,500 student members (about a quarter of the College’s student population), and about as many non-student members, making it (to our knowledge) the largest collegiate outing club in the nation (as well as the first). The DOC organizes trips in the out-of-doors, provides outdoor leader and medical/safety education, maintains over seventy miles of the Appalachian National Scenic Trail, and is the first introduction to the College for most of the incoming students. The DOC also plays an active role in stewardship of the environment through the Big Green Bus and its close relationship with Sustainable Dartmouth.
Due to its size, the Dartmouth Outing Club is organized as an umbrella organization for about a dozen member clubs, which each specialize in an aspect of outdoor recreation. Membership in the DOC is open to all members of the Dartmouth community, and to others who share common interests, so get involved!
