University of Maine Augusta Fitness Trails, Augusta


  • Preserve Size: Not sure
  • Trail Mileage: 2 miles in network
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: forest

Tucked behind the university buildings (and a little difficult to find for a newcomer!) are roughly 2 miles of trails in woods and small fields. When I visited in the winter of 2016, the trail signs had fallen into disrepair. It’s a little hard to block out the roar of the highway.

Directions: Drive along Community Drive toward the Augusta Civic Center. Turn left into the parking are for the Maine Municipal Association. The trailhead (which has a kiosk) is behind the tennis courts, to the side of the baseball fields.


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