Welcome to PHOC

Come join us on an outing!!

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

Founded in 1982, PHOC is an outdoor activities club with 500+ members, primarily from the Piedmont Triad area including Greensboro, Winston-Salem, High Point, Thomasville, Burlington, and surrounding communities. We do have members from Chapel Hill to Asheville, and Charlotte to Reidsville. Most members are in their 40's - 60's, with some 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

Saturdays we aim to schedule 3 hikes with a variety of difficulty, with drive distances of 30 minutes to 3 hours. Sundays we usually schedule an easy hike with a short drive distance. You can see our upcoming events here. Members

also suggest pick-up hikes, bikes and paddles via our private Google Group.
