Welcome to PHOC

Come join us on an outing!!

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.

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

    Andrew & Diane White are planning a bike riding weekend on the High Bridge Trail in Virginia, Friday April 26 through Sunday the 28th. The trail is a 30+ mile Rails-to-Trails pathway stretching from Pamplin to near Burkeville, with Farmville as a halfway hub.  Our plan is to do out and back rides on Saturday and Sunday. Day participants are also welcome.

    Andrew & Diane will be camping at the Twin Lakes State Park campground for Friday and Saturday nights. There are also cabins available for rental. The State Park is about a 15-minute drive to the trail. Holliday Lake State Park near Appomattox, VA is also nearby with campsites. For those who don't want to rough it, hotel accommodation can be found in Farmville. Campsites are limited so get your reservation in as soon as possible.
