Getting Outside

This page presents some tips for getting outside and tricks that might help make the spring in isolation just a little more enjoyable.

The routes listed below can of course be converted to running routes. For reference, I find that running times are often approximately half of the walking times. I've separated these into short (less than about 45 minutes), medium (more than 45 minutes but less than 2 hours), and long (a half- or full-day excursion).

Let me know at jrs7 (at) williams (dot) edu if there's anything you would like to see up here.

Bike Routes

As the weather warms up and you have bikes on campus, getting outside to smell the roses can help burn off some steam and allow you to get out of the room to enjoy the sunshine safely.

Note that Williamstown is located in the Purple Valley. Those mountains all around us mean that, in order to get anywhere, there's usually some uphill. The reward, however, is usually a terrific view!

Try them out, and let me know what you think!

Hybrid Routes

These routes would be especially nice if you bike to the destination, and then walk around a little (usually in the woods) when you're there.
