Fayetteville Area Outdoor Club is a group for adults who would like to participate in outdoor outings near Fayetteville and beyond. Outings may be hikes, backpacking trips, camping trips, canoeing, kayaking, etc.

The mission of FAOC is as follows:

-To get people outside and moving-that includes people of all ability and experience levels, political backgrounds, races, orientations and degrees of "environmentalism."

-We believe the shortest distance between two people is a hiking trail, and hope all participants will meet new friends as a result of club activity.

-We showcase the natural beauty of the state of North Carolina, especially to newcomers to the Fayetteville area and military families.

-We provide activities of various levels, from flat-trail walks to backpacking trips.

-We are not a dating organization, yet have about 50 % singles. We maintain a social chairperson and provide other events for those who desire to see their "outdoor friends" socially. Married folks also attend our social events.

-We serve as a forum for people to share the joy of their own outdoor experiences with others.
