Recreation

Ridgecrest Conference Center's diverse outdoor recreation options are a favorite of guests of all ages.

On any given day, visitors across the campus can enjoy our recreation area set against a backdrop of stunning mountains. The recreation area includes:

* Softball  
* Basketball (gymnasium)  
* Tennis  
* Volleyball (gymnasium or outdoor sand)  
* Hiking Trails (download trail map)  
* Miniature Golf ($3 per guest)
* Fishing (bring own gear)
* Disc Golf                              
* Skiing (nearby)
* Whitewater Rafting (nearby)             

As an added benefit to our guests, many of Ridgecrest's recreational activities are available to you at no additional charge.  Equipment is available complimentary for guests to check out at either the main Rec Shack (near the recreation fields) or at the registration desk in Pritchell.  Guests will only be charged (replacement value) if equipment is damaged or not returned.  Hours of operation for the Rec Shack vary by season and by campus occupancy.

And wait until you see the hiking trails. White oak and red maple trees seem to reach to the clouds. Evergreens blanket the trails with dropped pine cones. And the mountain laurel grows so thick in places, it creates a lush umbrella over the entire pathway. Trails range from easy to moderately difficult, but each afford spectacular views from scenic vantage points.
