Inland Woods Trails

The Inland Woods Trails, approximately 1 mile in length, provide a convenient link from busy Kennedy Memorial Drive to several miles of trails for mountain biking, walking, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing.

A short (¼ mile), mulched walking loop connects with a natural surface “Streamside Trail” and 24’ pedestrian bridge constructed by the Maine Conservation Corps that crosses over a small stream, an interesting natural feature of the property. The Streamside Trail then connects to a walking trail that climbs along the ridge and intersects with a double-track multi-use tote road trail leading to the 144-acre city-owned Pine Ridge Recreation Area.

The Inland Woods Trails were created through a collaboration of several community partners: Inland Hospital, Lakewood, Maine Department of Conservation, Maine Conservation Corps, Central Maine chapter of the New England Mountain Bike Association, Waterville Parks and Recreation Department, Kennebec Messalonskee Trails, and neighboring landowners.

Funding for the trails was provided in part by a Recreational Trail Program grant administered by the Maine Department of Conservation, Bureau of Parks and Lands with the balance of the funding provided by Inland, Lakewood and in-kind donations.

Inland Woods Trails, located in the 17-acre woods behind Inland Hospital at 200 Kennedy Memorial Drive in Waterville, are accessed via a trailhead in the back corner of the employee parking lot behind the hospital. For more information contact inlandhospital@emh.org or 861-3292.
