Welcome to the Rutherford Outdoor Coalition


Rutherford Outdoor Coalition

The Rutherford Outdoor Coalition was incorporated in May of 2003 as a private non-profit organization whose mission is to promote outdoor recreation in Rutherford County. ROC offers regular outings including hiking, paddling, cycling, running, equestrian and more. Most of our outings are free and open to anyone. Membership is encouraged but not required to join us on most outings. We host an annual cycling tour and river clean up. We are run entirely by volunteers.


ROC membership is encouraged to help sustain and improve the organization.
