Union University Trail System

The Union University trail system is to be enjoyed by Union University students, faculty, staff and alumni as well as the general public. The trail system includes approximately 5 miles of hiking, running, and mountain biking trails located just west of the Pleasant Plains entrance. The trail system is composed of mostly beginner trails with a few sections that are more technically intermediate. There are two main sections of the trail which can be seen below. The southern loop is the shorter of the two trails (approximately 2 miles) and is less challenging; although, there are a few steep grades and heavily coniferous areas. The northern section is approximately 3 miles and is the more challenging of the two trails.
