Two dozen fantastic adventures have joined Outdoor Project since last week's update, with beautiful photos and write-ups covering adventures in Utah, California, Colorado, and Oregon. Eric continues to shine a light onto some fantastic hiking and must-see kayaking opportunities in the Northeast; Jesse made a big push for Utah adventures that includes great climbs, ideal camping spots, and lush alpine hikes; John worked up some fine introductions to the Naturalist Basin; and, just in time for the winter weather, Shaun stepped up to take advantage of the Most Wanted Adventure bonus program with some gorgeous California hot springs. His two hot springs adventures earned 20 points! Check them out using the recommended adventure tiles below, or start with a few of these:

  • Naturalist Basin Hike: Quick access into a remarkable basin with backcountry camping options and higher alpine hikes.
  • New Haven Ledges: Short and sweet Class V water in Vermont. Great photos in this fast-paced adventure.
  • Indian Creek Corridor: Jesse's profile includes hiking, camping, biking, history...you really should look at this write-up if you are heading to Canyonlands National Park.
  • Crab Cooker Hot Springs: If you can work out the navigation on the rough roads, Crab Pot near Mammoth looks like a stunning spot to soak your bones.
  • Tumalo Mountain Backcountry Skiing + Snowboarding: We're excited to have the first of what we hope will be many adventures from the good folks at Rare Earth Adventures. If you're in Central Oregon looking for snow (a perfectly appropriate pursuit at the moment), this easily accessible slope is a staple.

Enjoy your weekend, and check back next week for more great adventures.
