Welcome to the Penquis Nature Center trail systems. There are three sets of trails. These
trails traverse the varied habitat of the area, giving a brief look at some of the more
important plants and animals found here. We are sure we don't have to tell you not to leave
cyber-trash along the cyber-trails, but would like to remind you that there is no virtual swimming
in the virtual beaver pond. It upsets the virtual beavers. Of course, during the winter the
prohibition is unnecessary. You'd need a cyber-ice auger to even get your cyber feet wet.

The Ridge Trails consist of two trails that take about half an hour to follow with shorter loops
that take 10 to 15 minutes. Each of these trails can be visited in summer, winter, spring, or
fall -- or that will be possible when the site is complete. Choose the trail and the season.
