Outdoors

Outdoors and unbounded. With the Appalachian Trail running through campus and the Connecticut River just steps away, outdoor activities are always accessible here. The Dartmouth Outing Club (DOC) is the country’s oldest and largest collegiate outing club, with membership open to all.

    Dartmouth’s outdoor recreation hub, the DOC was founded in 1909. Anyone—affiliated with Dartmouth or not—can join the more than 1,500 student members.

  • Outdoor Programs Office

    Oversees outdoor trips, educational programs, cabin rentals, and facilities, such as Dartmouth’s Cross Country Ski Center.

    Home to Dartmouth’s three-time NCAA championship ski team, the Skiway offers more than 100 acres of skiing on two mountains just 14 miles from campus.

  • Organic Farm

    The student-run farm is a living laboratory, providing independent research opportunities and hands-on experience in sustainable agriculture.

  • Moosilauke Ravine Lodge

    A popular hiking destination located 45 minutes from campus, Moosilauke provides lodging and meals for the Dartmouth community and the public.

  • The Second College Grant

    Recreational opportunities abound and cabins are available for rent in this nearly 27,000-acre northern New Hampshire wilderness owned by Dartmouth.
