Inland Woods Trails



The popular Inland Woods Trail system behind Inland Hospital has brought fun and physical activity to people of all ages and abilities since its inception in 2010. The family-friendly Inland Woods Trails, located in the 17-acre woods behind Inland Hospital, are approximately 1 mile in length and offer opportunities for even the littlest outdoor enthusiasts. These trails provide a convenient link to the Pine Ridge Trail system, offering several miles of trails for mountain biking, walking, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing.  
 
All are welcome to enjoy the Inland Woods and Pine Ridge Trails throughout the year. Trail access is behind Inland Hospital located at 200 Kennedy Memorial Drive in Waterville or from Rummel’s Field off the West River Road.   
 
The Inland and Pine Ridge Trails are available for our community thanks to the collaborative efforts and ongoing support of:
 
Inland Hospital, Central Maine Chapter of the New England Mountain Bike Association (CeMeNEMBA), Faith Evangelical Free Church, Kennebec Messalonskee Trails, Maine Department of Conservation, Maine Conservation Corps, neighboring landowners, Waterville Parks & Recreation, Dr. Rob Hottentot who designed and built our trailhead kiosk and Little Free Library, and countless volunteers who help with trail maintenance.

One of two kid-friendly trails, the little LET'S GO! Loop offers 5-2-1-0 messages to teach children (and their grownups) the importance of eating fruits and veggies, staying active, limiting screen time, and eliminating sugary drinks. The Squiggly Wiggly is the other fun trail for little hikers and big kids of all ages!
