The University of the West Indies was founded in 1948 as the University College of the West Indies at Mona, Jamaica. The University College achieved independent university status in 1962. The St Augustine Campus in Trinidad, formerly the Imperial College of Tropical Agriculture (ICTA), was started in 1960, and the Cave Hill Campus in Barbados was founded in 1963... Today the University is comprised of four campuses and many regional centres throughout the Caribbean. It has a student population of just over 36,000 and a faculty of just over 1000. It is the largest research intensive university in the Caribbean...
This walking/jogging path literally has no gradient to it. It is also very short so to get something out of it you might have to do this loop over 5 times with some appreciable pace. It is quite popular with the University community and the general public in the early morning and evening...
St. Augustine is a town in the north-west of Trinidad and Tobago. It is the site of one of the four campuses of the University of the West Indies. St. Augustine is home to thousands of university students and is now being converted to a university town as the economy of the area is fueled significantly by the spending power of the 60 000 plus university population. Many houses in the general university area have been converted to students' accommodation, but due to the lack of fee regulation, they are generally more than double the cost of university housing. Four of the five halls of residence provided by the University are located here, namely St. John's Hall, Milner Hall, Canada Hall, and Trinity Hall.
St. John's Road in St. Augustine is the main access road for Mount St. Benedict, one of the notable, historic sites in Trinidad and Tobago. On the Mount, you can find a Catholic Church along with a monastery and a factory where yogurt is made. On this road, there is also the St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church. The church is opposite to a Community Centre, which underwent renovations and now houses a new field for the residents to engage in football, one of the more popular sports of this area.
St. Augustine is also home to the Hugh Wooding Law School, a prestigious law school which attracts many inter-island students of the Caribbean and beyond. In close proximity to the law school is the University of the West Indies, Seismic Research Center, which is the official source of information on earthquakes and volcanoes in the English-speaking Caribbean.

    Very easy track for walking. It has no gradient to it so you would have to do this a few times to get anything resembling a bit of exercis out of it... On the other hand, the campus is quite picturesque...
