California's Perfect Gay Nude Swimming Holes

How can you beat sunny California and a gay nude swimming hole? Northern California is less populated and has some remote areas so it provides many more sites for nudity.

Hike the Sierra High Route in California

The most spectacular long-distance mountain walk in North America is so little known that only a few hikers have made the trek in its entirety.

Lodge-to-Lodge Skiing in the Maine Woods

Experience lodge-to-lodge skiing in the Maine Woods! Travel light and have a private cabin with wood stove, hot shower or sauna, and home-cooked dinner waiting for you at day's end.

LAMB Road Bike Ride in Vermont

Nestled in the heart of the Green Mountains of Vermont is a cluster of mountain pass roads. It is truly an epic ride, one that rivals the toughest one-day organized rides in the mountains out west. There’s great scenery out here, from open lush grazing valleys, rushing mountain streams, and vistas from several of the gap summits.

Best Places To Beat Cabin Fever

Slam the door in Old Man Winter’s face. Kick Jack Frost out cold. Laugh as the wintry wind howls. Their chilly fingers can’t get you inside your snug backcountry cabin. Warmed by a crackling wood stove, flush with enjoyment from a day’s exhilarating hike, ski, or snowshoe, you kick back and bliss out in the heart of winter’s domain.

Cross Country Skiing in the Bershires

The Berkshires are home to some of the most accesible cross country skiing in the northeast, especially for those who live in Boston, Hartford and New York City, where the drive to the trails is between two to three hours.

Epic Mountain Biking Ride in Michigan

Best Places to Try Winter Hiking

I recommend you start winter hiking on trails that are close to home or familiar to you. I also advocate keeping the mileage and elevation modest. Short day hikes (no more than 3 miles) will help you adapt to the extra gear and energy needed for winter conditions. The following routes are easy or moderate treks that lead into the frozen backcountry. Organized GO winter trips are listed in our Events Calendar

Weather Watch

Keep an eye on the weather to ensure a pleasant and safe camping trip.

Does your gear have an eco-conscience?

It’s ironic that outdoor enthusiasts—a generally eco-conscious bunch—clothe and outfit themselves extensively with petroleum-based products like polyester and nylon.

Gay Belize

When the Cayman Islands suddenly and famously refused entry of an Atlantis Events cruise to its ports in 1998, Belize let the boat dock. More than a decade later, gays are slowly discovering that it's an ideal warm-weather playground.
