Description

One of Augusta's hidden gems is the UMA Outdoor Fitness center. It is comprised of tennis courts, athletic fields, and nature trails totaling 2.2 miles. Though located in the heart of Maine's capital, the trails are peaceful and panoramic. There are a plethora of loops to take for leisurely walks, scenic runs, and ambitious biking. The trails also provide a full body work out: along each trail are "fitness stops" that encourage users to exercise the upper-body and core, as well as the lower body. Monkey bars, pull-up bars, and push up platforms are easy to use. The trails are open for use year round. 

Other Information

The UMA Indoor Fitness Center has memberships for just $12/month, or $100/year. The Outdoor Fitness Center trails, and tennis courts are free for the community
