The Outsiders (formerly XCrounty):  The Outsiders is a club of L/A Senior College whose members participate in outdoor activities that are physically challenging and socially engaging.  Members view this as a way to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors while in the company of others. Activities may include hiking in the woods, climbing mountains, cross-country skiing, or snowshoeing. These activities are generally at no cost to the participant.  Members provide their own equipment.  Some car pool while others drive by themselves to the site.

For hiking, participants need to walk comfortably for several hours, often over loose rocks or roots. Mountain climbing, with elevation gains and occasional stream crossings, is more of a brisk aerobic activity and requires good balance.  Snowshoeing is similar to hiking, but with some elevation gains.  Cross-country skiing is mostly over flat areas with minor grade changes.

The Outsiders welcomes new members.
