The Bond Brook Recreation Area is a 17 mile trail system for hikers, mountain bikers, Nordic skiers, snowshoers, bird-watchers and trail runners on 268 acres of city owned land right in the heart of Augusta, stretching from Bond Brook to the airport. It is free and open to the public. More info ->
GETTING THERE: Bond Brook Recreation Area is accessed via Tall Pines Way, a newly constructed dirt road off of the Bond Brook Rd. in Augusta. Look for a recreation area sign located at the junction of Tall Pines Way and the Bond Brook Rd. This is not far from the junction of Mount Vernon Avenue/Civic Center Drive and the Bond Brook Rd., just south of the University of Maine at Augusta.
Drive across Bond Brook on a narrow bridge and turn right, heading up Tall Pines Way to the “Bowl” trailhead area located below the Augusta Airport.
