Burnt Rock Adventure Co. an outdoor enthusiast store owned by Toland Cochrane and Aaron Hayman opened its doors in May of 2021. The shop carries top-of-line products in pedal and electric hybrid bikes, scooters and accessories, longboards and skateboards, canoes, kayaks, paddleboards, camping equipment, and activewear apparel.

With the change of seasons, Burnt Rock Adventure will carry items that can be utilized throughout the winter.

“We will be carrying winter apparel, cross country skies, snowshoes, as well as items for winter camping, but we will also still be carrying the spring/summer items so that customers can purchase them for Christmas and other special occasions and also so they can plan their next year’s adventures,” commented Cochrane.
