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.
