Trips and events are what we are all about, they are the life blood of OCVT. Here you can view and sign up for all our upcoming trips. If you don't see anything going on or anything you like please lead a trip of your own. All our members are encouraged to lead trips, being a leader will help you meet more people and increase your skills and confidence. If you have any questions take a look in the help section or contact an officer, happy trails!
