Welcome to PHOC

Come join us on an outing!!

PHOC is an outdoor activities club founded in 1982 with 450+ members, including individuals and families from the Piedmont Triad area of central North Carolina including Greensboro, Winston-Salem, High Point, Thomasville, Burlington, and surrounding communities. We have members from Chapel Hill to Asheville, from Charlotte to Reidsville. Most members are in their 40's, 50's, and 60's, but we also have many individuals and families of older and younger ages.  

Regular activities include:

  • Day hikes, canoeing/kayaking, and biking
  • Overnight backpacking, camping, canoeing/kayaking and ski trips
  • Dinner outings, club parties and picnics
  • Other events, including group trips throughout the US and around the world
Most Saturdays we aim to schedule an easy hike, a moderate and a strenuous hike with varying drive distances of 30 minutes to 3 hours. Sundays we usually schedule an easy hike with a short drive distance.

You name it, the group has something for everyone! See the Join page for our low annual rates.
