Experience The Ozarks Like Never Before ...
Hiking the Ozarks' 11th annual Outdoor Rendezvous, November 6, 7 and 8, 2020
Horseshoe Canyon Ranch, Jasper AR


At this one of a kind outdoor extravaganza you will hike your butt off, learn outdoor skills like a master, and have fun with cool people who love the outdoors as much as you do. 

Heck, you might even WIN a trip to Everest Base Camp!! (Like Josh did at the 2019 Outdoor Rendezvous, or Rachel did at the 2018 Outdoor Rendezvous!)


In fact, here's just a sample of what's in store for you at this epic outdoor BLAST ...
HIKE
Enjoy 3 days of hikes to visit some of the most famous hikes of the Ozark Mountains
The Ozarks are home to some of the country's most amazing hikes on thousands of miles of beautiful terrain. Choose from 3 - 5 different guided hikes EACH DAY, depending on your level of expertise and interest. 
ROCK CLIMBING
Prefer to rock climb? OK!
The Rendezvous' home base at Horseshoe Canyon Ranch in Jasper, Arkansas, is one of the most popular rock climbing destinations in the Midwest. Like in past years, we will have beginner rock climbing classes on Saturday and Sunday, as well as an advanced class on Sunday. Krista Bowman, showing her stuff here, is our lead rock climbing instructor and travels from Canada to share her expertise and world class rock climbing instruction (NOTE: Registration is first come, first served and you must be present to register. Rock climbing is always weather permitting.)
OUTDOOR CLASSES
Master your outdoor skills
Learn to better manage your skills in the outdoors with outdoor classes led by Dan Nash, Founder & President of Hiking the Ozarks (you saw him in the video above). Whether you're an experienced hiker or an absolute beginner, there will be some wicked nuggets of wisdom for you from Dan's decades-long expertise in the wilderness. No matter your experience, we aim to further empower you to keep you safe and have more fun!
WIN BIG!
Chance to win an expedition!
As in past years, we will be raffling off a trip to the winner's choice of Mt Kilimanjaro, a trekking or climbing trip in Peru or Everest Base Camp with Hiking the Ozarks' sister company, Satori Expeditions ... a trip worth up to $3,500! Yes, that's THREE THOUSAND AND FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS! If you've been putting off that trip of a lifetime, now's your chance to make it happen. PLUS ... because we just love the joy we see in your faces when we give stuff away, we might even have a second HUGE raffle ... but we're not telling you anything more yet :)
PEOPLE
Make amazing new friends who love the outdoors as much as you do
The reason this event has been going on for OVER A DECADE is not only because there are no events like this in the Midwest, and not only because you can join fellow adventurers from over 10 different states. It's because people really come together at this mega-outdoor event and continue to make new friends, find new hiking buddies, and share their love of the outdoors. Connection and community ... it's what we're here for.
DIRTY SOMEONE ELSE'S BOOTS?!
Muddy up Lowa boots
We'll have to confirm details but LOWA BOOTS has been to the Rendezvous for the last five years with its totally INSANE DEMO BOOT Program! Sign out a pair of Lowa Boots to give them a whirl and return at the end of the day - no matter how muddy and stinky. Lowa believes in its products so much that they're willing to let you try them in action (spoiler alert: they're our favorite, too!). By the way, you wont' find the Lowa Demo Boot program anywhere else even remotely close to the Midwest ... but we're special :)
SURPRISES
Who doesn't love surprises?
We've been lucky to have some AMAZING Ozarks weather in past years and 2019 was no exception! Beautiful crisp clear days made for perfect hiking weather. Except we've also had crazy rain, sleet and high winds in the past as well (regardless, we ALWAYS have a great time and always run hikes no matter what the weather). To make sure you have more than enough fun at your fingertips, we're working on even more activities, classes and games so you'll not run out of things to do.
LIVE!
Live Music!
We had our first experience with live music in 2019 and it was a hit ... so we're bringing Luce Cannons back for more. These guys play everything from 1950 onward so they can satisfy pretty much every taste out there. Since the nighttime temperatures had dropped we crammed everyone into the rock climbing barn before the big trip raffle. We'll also be doing a few extra giveaways as we did last year (including another BIG surprise giveaway - but for now our lips are sealed :))
NAMASTE
Yoga treks + pre-hike yoga
You could do yoga within 4 dark walls ... or this can be your yoga studio. Weather permitting, we'll do a yoga trek at the Ranch (including waterfall view and suspension bridge), along with a full hour of yoga to truly connect with nature. Ranch horses or goats may be hanging around for a full ranch experience. Alternatively, you may wish to partake in 20-minute pre-hike yoga sessions in the barn to get your body and mind geared up to get the most out of your hikes. 
I've made the 7-hour drive from Illinois the last 4 years. Such a fun time!

As Seen On...
IMPORTANT INFO!
-WHAT is included in the fee?
Your registration fee of $55 (or $35 for children under 18) includes all hikes, rock climbing, outdoor education classes and the adventure film. This registration ALSO includes the $10 day-use fee that Horseshoe Canyon Ranch charges its visitors which we will pay the Ranch on your behalf.  Remember that although there is no additional fee for rock climbing, classes are limited to first come, first served, and you will need to be present at the event to register. NO EXCEPTIONS. You will also need to have your own helmet, harness and shoes, which you can rent from the Ranch if you do not have your own. 
-what if it rains?
THE EVENT GOES ON. In the 10 years we've had this event, we've had pretty much every kind of weather imaginable ... from beautiful, warm, sunny days to icy rain. Rain or shine, the event will go on. In fact, some of the most fun times we've had have been in the rain. In the event of wet or exceptionally cold weather, rock climbing classes will be cancelled and certain hikes may also be cancelled in order to keep everyone safe. But we've never run out of activities to keep you busy. Remember, there are no refunds including for rainy weather!
-WHAT if i want to come for only 1 or 2 days?
No problem! Many of our past attendees have come either Friday night or Saturday morning. However, since we have worked so hard to keep the price INSANELY low (really ... where can you get up to 3-days of outdoor fun for THIS PRICE?!), there is no discounted price for those who attend only a portion of the event. The event is one price whether you come for all or only a portion of it. 
-what about accommodations?
You are responsible for arranging your accommodations. Horseshoe Canyon Ranch has limited cabins for rent but they sell out quickly so if you want one, contact the ranch ASAP for options! Additional housing and hotel accommodations in the Jasper area are limited so make your arrangements quickly! Most attendees choose to camp at the Ranch for an additional $5 per night fee paid directly to Horseshoe Canyon Ranch. Camping reservations are not required (although space is first come, first served). There is a simple shower in the campground for a nominal fee. No, there will not be luxury accommodations ... this is an OUTDOOR Extravaganza!!! (Although there really are some beautiful cabins and houses for rent in the area ... all the more reason to make your plans NOW!)
-can i bring my kids?
We love kids! We also want to welcome kids in order to help foster a community that is physically active, takes part in outdoor activities and learns outdoor skills to better protect themselves. HOWEVER, you as the parent or guardian are the best judge as to how much your child is capable of doing and how much they will enjoy the event (and you are best equipped to keep your child safe). Please note that ALL CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 18 MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY A PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN. In addition, all attendees will be required to sign a waiver of liability, and that includes a child under the age of 18 years signing ALONG WITH their parent or legal guardian.
-what food options are available?
BYOFAW - Bring Your Own Food And Water. Backpacker Pucks will be back at the booth to sell their famously delicious snack bars and Daniela will be selling her green smoothies - which might be the only vegetable you see in 3 days. We may have some additional snacks available for sale at the booth area BUT Horseshoe Canyon Ranch does NOT have a restaurant, nor are there any nearby food shops or restaurants. Come prepared with your own coolers. (And remember ... you'll be active so you'll need enough food to keep you fueled up for your activities!)
-do i need any hiking experience?
Nope! While many of the hikes may be challenging depending on your expertise and level of fitness, hikes will have varying degrees of difficulty. Our guides can help you choose an appropriate hike. You may also wish to hang out at the Ranch and enjoy the short hikes right on the property. It's beautiful and you'll enjoy gazing off upon the colorful fall leaves and stunning rock formations while horses and goats roam the open fields ... tranquility, anyone?!
-where are the hikes?
Hikes take place in the Ozark National Forest and the Buffalo National River. The trailheads for most of the hikes are 20-30 minutes from Horseshoe Canyon Ranch. Guides will gather their group at the front booth area each morning, and help organize car pools over to the trailheads. Check out the schedule here. 
-CAN I BUY EXTRA RAFFLE TICKETS?
YES! You will receive 1 free raffle ticket with your admission ticket which gives you a chance to WIN A TRIP TO EVEREST BASE CAMP, MT PISCO OR MT KILIMANJARO. You can also purchase additional raffle tickets for $1 each to a maximum of TWENTY (or $20 worth, for a total of 21 raffle tickets ... unless you are one of the first 50 purchasers in which case you will receive an additional TEN BONUS raffle tickets! The trip is NON TRANSFERABLE but you have until November 2022 to use your gift. 
-what if i cannot come after I've purchased a ticket?
We understand - life happens! However, there are NO REFUNDS. You may, however, feel free to transfer your reserved spot to another person PROVIDED you let us know in advance - all you need to do is email us and let us know the name of the person coming in your place. 
-can you tell me more about the lowa demo boot program?
Lowa Boots chooses only select events around the country to be part of this program - and the Outdoor Rendezvous is lucky enough to be one! Lowa provides dozens of demo boots (cleaned and refurbished by the company so they are like new!) of its most popular hiking boots and rock climbing shoes for YOU to wear on your hike. All you do is show a valid driver's license, get some advice on which boots to try, pick a pair in your size and off you go to give them a try! Because Lowa Boots are so comfortable and so unbelievably well made, there is no need to "break them in." The boots are NOT for sale so you won't be pressured into buying anything. This program is simply a way for Lowa to prove to its customers that it stands firmly behind its products and to let you decide for yourself if Lowas are the most comfortable and rugged boots you've worn. If you're wondering why the Rendezvous is so lucky to have this LOWA Demo Boot Program at our grassroots event, it is because Dan is a sponsored athlete by Lowa Boots. During his decades-long and extensive hiking, backpacking and mountaineering experience around the world, Dan has worn boots from most major boot manufacturers, as well as conducted dozens of gear reviews on outdoor boots and shoes. Lowa was his pick even before he became  a sponsored athlete.
