As far as the Dartmouth Outing Club goes, Hanover is where it all begins. Forever intertwined with the college campus and all its activities, Hanover is the center for the DOC's outdoor facilities and programs. Robinson Hall, for example, located in the center of campus and just south of the Green, houses the Dartmouth Outing Club offices, as well as Dartmouth Outdoor Rentals. Included in this section are not only the descriptions and locations for various DOC facilities, but also some of the natural areas around Hanover. These natural areas continue to expand and provide the community with more and more opportunities to enjoy the beauty, peace, and solitude of the outdoors.
