Used Gear Sales


Supported by Dayton Hikers benefitting the Spotted Turtle Trail Fund of the Beaver Creek Wetlands Association

Visitors to the Adventure Summit have a chance to pick up some lightly used outdoor recreation related equipment.  The Used Gear Area provides a great place for outdoor adventurers to recycle their used gear. This reduces waste going into our landfills and helps others pick up the equipment needed to try a new outdoor adventure at an introductory rate.
