What we're about

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

Walkers And Talkers, Cape Fear River Trail

Cape Fear River Trail at the Jordan Soccer Complex

We meet at the picnic tables, in the pavilion. Let's walk & socialize. We usually walk 4 miles or more if we are feeling adventurous, but free to turn around anytime. It is a walk out and back, not a loop. Watch your distance, because you have to come back. This is a hilly terrain, and we walk up hill on the way back. Clear, wide, and paved trail that is stroller friendly. There is only one water station, and on Sundays it is usually empty, especially on hot days. Please bring a water bottle or two for yourself. We will pair you up with someone at your speed, the goal is to have fun and enjoy a good walk, that the talk will make seem shorter. The meet time was 10:15 a.m., it has changed to 8:00a.m during hotter months. We sometimes go for coffee after the walk to continue socializing.
