Summer sprints plus other options
(non-sprint courses can be done on foot, roller-blade, rollerski, or bike)

ED notes:
Tuesday's courses all start at the pavilion in Collins Park. Directions to start: I-87 Northway exit 9 west one mile on Rt 146 to (I think its the 4th traffic light) Moe Road. Turn south on Moe Rd and take the second driveway on the left. Restrooms are straight ahead and the pavilion is just beyond. From the west take Route 146 from Rexford east. Go straight through the construction at the intersection of Route 146 and 146A. (note NYSDOT is promising a new traffic pattern through this intersection tomorrow July 22). Continue east to the second traffic light and right on Moe Road.

Courses:

Intro for youth and parent or anyone unfamiliar with orienteering 0.6 k all within the park
Short Course 2.7 k
Medium Course 3.8 k
Long Course 4.4 k

The highest climb (several feet) can be seen right from the pavilion. I see only two contour lines on the map. The medium course can be done with roller skis. I will have a pair to borrow, but you must be an experienced rollerskier. The short, medium and long courses can be done on a mountain bike, but I would recommend the long course. And you cannot leave with a bike w/o a helmet and all sorts of cautions about crossing traffic lanes. There are no mountains, only forested sand dunes.
