Getting Outdoors

Explore the unique area of Southwest Virginia.

Ready to explore some of the most beautiful areas of Appalachia?  The Outdoor Program is available to the entire Emory & Henry community.  The goal of the Outdoor Program is to responsibly introduce the E&H students, faculty, and staff to the wonders of hiking, backpacking, rock climbing, paddling, cross-country skiing and biking — no prior experience needed! 

Whether you’re looking to get away for an afternoon climb, or ready to earn credit while hiking the Appalachian Trail, there’s no shortage of adventure.
