FROM SOUTHWEST OHIO OR CINCINNATI
If you are traveling from the southwest or passing through Cincinnati, take I-275 around to the east side of Cincinnati.
If traveling from the Cincinnati airport, follow the signs to I-275 East toward Cincinnati/I-71/I-75. Follow I-275 for approximately 24 miles.
Take Exit 63 B onto OH-32 East. Follow OH-32 East to Athens. If you are driving from the Chillicothe area, take US-50 E to Athens.
Just West of Albany, OH, at the Ohio University Airport, OH-32 East joins together with US-50 East. Continue East on OH-32/US-50 for approximately 9 miles.
Take Exit 17, for OH-682 North. Turn right at the first traffic light, onto Richland Avenue, to cross the Hocking River and enter the Ohio University campus. At the first traffic light, take a left. The Ohio Softball Field will be on your right, just past the Convocation Center.
FROM NORTHEAST OHIO OR CLEVELAND
If you are driving from the Cleveland or Akron area, take I-77 South toward Marietta. OH -821 South runs along parallel to I-77 therefore, as you travel along I-77 you will pass several exits for OH-821.
Just before Marietta, take Exit 6, marked "Lower Salem & Marietta" and "OH-821 South." At the off-ramp stop sign, turn right, following the sign "to OH-7 South."
Go a couple of miles to the "T" intersection at the end of OH-821, where there is a traffic light; turn left onto OH-60 South, and drive another couple of miles into town, straight through several traffic lights.
Turn right at a traffic light immediately following the sign for "Junction OH-7", onto OH-7 South, and drive along the Ohio River to Belpre.
Stay on OH-7 as it joins US-50 West and OH-32 West at Belpre (across the Ohio River from Parkersburg, WV; this happens at the first bridge over the Ohio River south of Marietta). Once you are on US-50 West, in Belpre, you have about 45 minutes still to go.
Stay on US-50 West all the way up the Hocking River valley to the city of Athens. This will require an exit from the OH-7 four-lane less than a mile west of the small sign to turn left for "downtown Coolville."
After US-50 joins US-33 in Athens, take Exit 17, for OH-682 North. Turn right at the first traffic light, onto Richland Avenue, to cross the Hocking River and enter the Ohio University campus. At the first traffic light, take a left. The Ohio Softball Field will be on your right, just past the Convocation Center.
