Outdoor Program

Local Resources*

The area around Ashland is rich with outdoor opportunities. Whenever you go to spend time outside with friends it is important to know a little bit about what you are getting into. If it is your first time doing something, it may be wise to hire a guide.

The S.O.U. Outdoor Program will provide you with the information you need to have fun in the outdoors in a safe way. If you have questions about the area, nearby attractions, or anything that might have just a little to do with being outside, make the Outdoor Program your first stop for information.

Below is a list of links to websites that you may find helpful as you plan your trip.
