A brief description of the program:

The Terrapin Trail Club is a student organization that sponsors various outdoor recreational activities, such as hiking, backpacking, camping, mountain biking, caving, canoeing, rock climbing, and kayaking. The club is student run and the activities are available to all registered students, faculty, and staff of the University of Maryland. The Terrapin Trail Club was founded in 1937 by Elinor Cody and is therefore the oldest active club on campus. It is also one of the oldest college outing clubs in the nation. Several current campus clubs have sprung from the Trail Club, including the Ski & Snowboard Club and the Cycling Club.
