Welcome to the Trail and River Rovers of East Carolina. For short, you can call us TRREC (pronounced "trek").

TRREC is a mechanism for enjoying the outdoors with like-minded people. 

TRREC’s organizers are not “leaders”. We organize events for those with the skills and resources necessary to participate. However, if you are new to backpacking, kayaking, or bicycling and want to know how to get started, we will be happy to help you and share what we know. It takes a bit of learning, and it requires some gear, but the rewards are immense.

So whether it’s ‘packing, paddling, or pedaling, we hope to see you out there on the trail….

And now that you know what we're all about: Before joining TRREC, please review the "Member Policies" page below. The "Letter to Members on TRREC's First Birthday" will give you a good idea of how we've established our character over a year in operation. For basic information about skills and equipment needed to participate in TRREC outings, visit our Questions, Info., and Tips discussion forum.

We're 379 TRRECers

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
