The University of Maine at Augusta offers well-maintained peaceful and panoramic nature trails with different difficulty zones. In the warmer months, our wooded paths are a great option for leisure walking, running, and mountain biking. Those that embrace the colder months can enjoy cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. The Outdoor Fitness Center trails and adjacent tennis courts are free to the community year-round.
