We at Outdoor Project feel incredibly fortunate to have worked with over 750 Contributors located across the country and beyond since we first "opened our doors" in 2013. These are the individuals who commit their dreams, sweat, and talent to generate the remarkable stories that are at the heart of the Outdoor Project community experience. Whether it’s soaking in a remote geothermal pool surrounded by old-growth or standing on a summit enjoying 360-degree views of a dramatic alpine environment, these Contributors are dedicating themselves to building a phenomenal resource for all outdoor enthusiasts, created by outdoor enthusiasts.

We're only halfway through the year and 2017 has already been full of big news, growth, and events for Outdoor Project - but we’re incredibly excited to celebrate a HUGE publication milestone that perhaps ranks at the top of our team's list: 

On June 14th, 2017, Outdoor Project published its 5,000th adventure! 

In true OP style, there's no better way to celebrate than to pause for a bit to look at a few of the most iconic and unique stories, images, and locations represented on the site. The 100 adventures selected here exemplify the spirit of awe and appreciation we all share when we get outside in remarkable spots; each of these adventures is an excellent story in itself, bringing the reader right into the action with compelling writing and inspiring photography.

Stare into the curious black eyes of a mountain goat on Colorado’s Buffalo Mountain; leap from a cliff to the base of a waterfall in Oregon’s remote Salmon River Canyon; ponder the purpose of Utah’s ancient and majestic False Kiva; shred the chutes of California’s Lassen Peak; explore New York's vast and breathtaking Adirondacks; head south in search of backcountry adventure in Tennessee's Great Smoky Mountains; cross borders to shred some of British Colombia's finest singletrack; or even 'cross the pond' for the ultimate French Alps experience that is Aiguille du Midi. Whatever fits your fancy, these adventures do more than help you find amazing spots - they take you there.

Of course, “best” is a subjective term and there are thousands (literally!) of additional Outdoor Project adventures that may vie for the top spot in your heart. Take a moment to wander through these extraordinary stories, and spend a little time exploring the related adventures as well. You’re sure to find your own 100 best and add a few to your to-do list. And remember that you only live once, so don’t let another year go by without completing one of these stunning outdoor adventures - get outside and enjoy!

Great work OP Team! Incredible production, outreach, and education. For me, it's always been about building community. It's been exciting to see this all come together-- and I'm looking forward to seeing the growth and adventure continue!
Thanks David! The name of the region doesn't necessarily follow the drainages in that region. The full name for that region is Mount Hood + Clackamas River Area, and adventures on the Sandy River (and other drainages) are included in that region. For a graphic showing the regional breakdown of Oregon and other states, search by map and filter by region.
Trip #1 "Mount Hood Sandy Glacier Ice Caves is mis located . You have in the Clackamas River area and it is not there. It is in the Sandy River area, in fact the Sandy Glacier and the nearby Reid and Zigzag Glaciers are the headwaters of the Sandy River. The Clackamas River is near by.
