Celebrating 21 years of outdoor adventures, the Texins Outdoor Club (aka TOC) was officially formed on September 19th, 1996.

Thank you for considering joining the Texins Outdoor Club. If you like nature, if you like to get outdoors to explore, exercise, and just get away, this is your club - you are among friends. Our events are sometimes challenging! Whether it’s hitting a bike trail on short notice, hiking the woods on a weekend outing, paddling our favorite stream, or traveling to find breath-taking scenery and adventure, we love taking every opportunity to get out there. Browse our website and see what we are about. If you see something you like and live in the North Texas area, RSVP. If you have an idea for an outing, suggest it. One of our organizers will contact you and firm things up. If you are lucky enough to find your way outdoors, leave nothing behind and take nothing but memories.

We are interested in many outdoor adventure sports including, but not limited to, backpacking in our country's pristine state and national parks, biking (both road and mountain), camping, hiking, and paddling the wild and wonderful rivers of Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas. Some of us enter regional cycling events. Our events are led by volunteer members. Our goal is to plan year-around outdoor events. Occasionally, we'll take extended trips traveling to far off destinations out of state and even outside the US.

We try to meet monthly to socialize, plan events, and share . Meetup Organizers volunteer their time, skills and knowledge to provide opportunities so that others may improve their skills while participating in outdoor activities.

TOC is member club of the Texins Association of Clubs (TAC), a non profit organization related to Texas Instruments; however, anyone is welcome to join TOC.

Although the club no longer has climbing and backpacking equipment for rental/use, we still maintain several kayaks which are available for rent.

Again, thanks for considering joining our ever growing group of outdoor adventurers and explorers! We invite you to become a member and join us on our great outdoor adventures.
