MCC Fitness Trail

Entrance to the Bedford Fitness Trail


Get your walking shoes ready! The Fitness Trail is a walking/hiking trail in the scenic woods of the Bedford Campus supported by an MCC Foundation Grant. For a structured workout, the 1.25 mile long, 10-station Fit-Tail combines a series of scientifically designed exercises which, when combined with walking or jogging, can provide a well-balanced workout for the entire body.

A separate .75 mile loop goes around
the perimeter of a frog pond. Trails pass through stands of pine forest and wind through open meadows and fields. Fern beds, stone walls, waterfalls, quiet pools, and a wide variety of plant and animal wildlife make the Fitness Trail a memorable experience. This trail serves as a recreational resource for walking, hiking, skiing/snowshoeing, viewing wildlife, fitness enthusiasts, class field trips, and much more.

The Fitness Trail is perfect for:

  • hiking
  • walking
  • jogging
  • mountain biking
  • birding 
  • skiing
  • snowshoeing
  • photography
  • meditating
  • reading
  • relaxing

 

Fit-Trail Stations

The Fit-Trail route starts and ends near MCC’s Campus Center (Building 8), and travels in a loop. The first station is at the base of the field adjacent to Parking Lot M. These fitness stations provide a structured workout routine for trail users. Each station is equipped with a large, detailed sign, explaining how to safely use that station for a specific exercise. Refer to the Trail Map for the specific location of each fitness station, or discover the stations on your own as you walk the path.

If you are unfamiliar with how to use the fitness equipment or it appears that the equipment/trail is damaged in anyway, please do not use the equipment/trail and contact the Middlesex Fitness and Recreation Department.

Preserving The Trail

To help preserve the trail for years to come, A Fitness Trail Preservation Fund has been established by the MCC Foundation.
