October 5 – October 11th

Hello WOC family!  Come check out some of the awesome outdoor events we
have going on this week. All events are open to the Williams College


MOUNTAIN DAY????  Listen for the bells to ring out!!

Mountain Day HIKES - Spots still open for Stone hill hikes

This year, Mountain Day will be running 49 hikes from on-campus to nearby
locations to enjoy the wonderful fall foliage! You will need to sign up
ahead of time for a hike this year. We ask that you sign up for just one
trip to ensure room for everyone. You must be enrolled on-campus to
participate in official hikes.

On Mountain Day, you’ll meet your hike group in Frosh Quad and leave from
there! Please remember to arrive on time, wear a mask, bring water, and
bring good shoes for walking/hiking. You’ll receive an email with more
specifics about your hike and what you need to bring.

Sign up to join a Mountain Day hike here!

Simmer up Stone Hill - Help the sun burn off the morning mist to reveal a
stunning fall vista, and make a cup of cocoa (or oatmeal!) while you're at
it! Join Lyza and Gavin at 8 AM outside Paresky for a walk to Stone Hill,
where we’ll run a quick tutorial on how to use backpacking stoves - a
miracle of convenience which anyone can learn. Savor your favorite morning
drink and take in the view. Sign up with this
form, or by emailing [log in to unmask] (Use the same email for questions
or concerns - Capacity is 5).

Weekly sunrise hike “wake up” and down Pine Cobble - witness sunrise at
6:59AM. Meet on Paresky steps at 5:30 AM.  Dress for the weather ( bring
extra layers) footwear for a trail that can be wet, muddy and always rocky!
Headlamps are highly recommended (I’ll have extras if needed!) bring a
filled water bottle and a cup for hot drinks.  Return to campus by
