gorge-ous gals 2019 web photo.png


Okay gals it’s your turn to have ALL of the fall color fun on the shores of the Menominee River in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  The scenic Piers Gorge section of the Menominee River provides the colorful backdrop for a weekend of adventure and camaraderie presented by True North Outpost. On Oct. 19, 2019, gather female friends and family to enjoy fun times customized by you for you.

Women ages 12 and up can choose two of the following six activities to fill their Saturday with enjoyment:

Whitewater Rafting* 

Class 3 and 4 rapids – Wetsuits and spray jackets to keep warm provided

 Jewelry making*

Choose from a huge selection of vintage and new beads to make a custom reminder of your weekend

Mountain biking

From a leisurely ride to view the colors to a hardcore mountain trail we have you covered – bikes provided or bring your own! Coach available if you want to learn or improve your skills


Indoor Bouldering Instruction (shoes and gear provided). Can you master the route? Our instructors will help you make it happen!


See the water falls and colored leaves of Piers Gorge along a beautiful hiking trail.  Trail is less than 2 miles of mild to moderate activity with lots of stops along the way. 

Antique painting and restoration techniques*

Create a hand painted or stenciled sign and distress it for your home

Additional Activities can be scheduled throughout the Day or are part of the day’s activity:


30 minute slots available limited to 20/day

Scavenger hunt

As you complete the scheduled activities or go about your day look for items to complete the scavenger hunt

Saturday evening will consist of an outdoor cooking demonstration, dinner and campfire.

Sunday morning, we gather once more to celebrate everyone’s accomplishments before returning home.

Challenge yourself to try something new and adventurous or gather with friends and socialize while making jewelry. We don’t care. We just want you to have a weekend all about you because we appreciate everything that you do!

You deserve to be Gorge-ous!
