LA GRANDE, Ore. August 12, 2016 – Eastern Oregon University’s Outdoor Adventure Program is planning a three-day camping and recreation trip to the wild Elkhorn Mountains of northeast Oregon, September 18-20.
Open to new students enrolling for fall 2016, the East Track excursion is an opportunity to meet friends and learn about EOU and the surrounding area. From their base camp near Anthony Lakes Mountain Resort, participants will have access to activities like stand-up paddleboarding, hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking, fishing, swimming, kayaking, slacklining, mountaineering and more.

Highlights include hiking along the 23-mile Elkhorn Crest National Recreation Trail following the 8,000-foot backbone of the Elkhorn range through high alpine meadows, past impressive peaks and pristine lakes.
Students interested in rock climbing have the perfect surface to learn on the craggy granite cliffs above Anthony Lakes. Trails for mountain biking zigzag throughout the basin, and several of the surrounding lakes are ideal for paddleboarding and kayaking.
“We really encourage students to try new activities,” said Michael Hatch, Outdoor Adventure Program coordinator. “The options are limitless and no prior experience is needed. Plus, we have an amazing rental shop to outfit everyone with the gear for the trip.”
All food and outdoor equipment will be provided and is included in the registration fee of $95. Registration is limited to 30 participants.
