Around Campus


There’s nothing like soaking up the great outdoors while getting some exercise.

That’s why the University of Montevallo recently installed the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama Fitness Trail at University Lake. The 10-station trail is a spur off the hiking trail that begins in Orr Park and provides a scenic 1.3-mile trek for joggers, runners and walkers alike. And if you really feel like maximizing your exercising, pay attention to each of the 10 station markers—each one is marked with a suggested exercise for you to perform at that spot in order to provide a well-balanced workout.
