  • Trail Mileage: ~ 5 miles in network
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: woods, stream, fields, granite quarry

The 175-acre Augusta Nature Education Center, offers a network of about five trails. The mostly wooded area is conveniently close to downtown, and has lots of access points. There’s a stream in the center, and many, many trails that wind (wend?) all about.

Directions: The trail system is bordered to the north by South Belfast Ave, or Route 105, and to the south by Cony Street Extension. On the west side is the Hodgkins Middle School and on the east side is the Vocational Technical Center and Cony high school. There are many access points, although for people not familiar with the area, parking at Cony High School is probably easiest (on weekends).


Let me know if you have any trail updates or corrections!
