I've been told that there are "trails" on the Quarry road and behind Maine General that lead to WalMart. But after multiple attempts I have not found them. Sometimes I walk to WalMart after work at Colby College. This supposed trail would be much easier for me instead of going all the way around when I walk.

On my first attempt I saw nothing resembling a trail, turned around and took the long way to WalMart. On the second attempt, I walked all the way down Quarry Rd until I could no longer see the lights of the shopping centers. Nothing resembling anything that a reasonable person would consider a trail. But I did venture into a clearing and was quickly met with a hill that was far too steep for me to consider safe to climb. Turned around and took the long way. On the last attempt I did the same. Found the clearing and crawled up the hill just out of sheer stubbornness. Figured I could go back down the hill if, I had to, on my rear to avoid falling and rolling down the hill. Got the top of this hill/wall and was met with a ten foot tall fence. In the middle of the woods. Why?? Turned around, went back down the hill on my butt as planned, ended up getting my hands scratched up by thorns and then took the long way around. All of this with an audience, in the middle of the night. Because apparently there is no place or time in Waterville where there isn't a steady stream of traffic. Felt like an idiot.



Does anybody know if these trails actually exist? It doesn't seem like they do.

No idea, could this be a trail leading off to the right here?

And have you explored the back side of the Maine General parking lot? It's a pretty short distance from there to Walmart.
