This boardwalk through a Maine bog is truly an experience for just about anyone! The boardwalk was actually in the stages of replacement and upgrade, but still open and very walkable! Signage is very good for what vegetation is available in each section of the walk and we found just about everything shown! Truly a lovely way to get a... More

the orono bog walk, part of the bangor city forest is a hidden treasure in this part of state. while both educational and beautiful natural setting at a self paced tour of many flowers, wetland, fauna and flora, mot days docents are present to answer your many inquiries.a space that all ages can enjoy as well as being ADA star.

This is a unique opportunity to see a bog - learn how it forms, the plants and animals that populate it's various eco-zones. Don't miss it!

The bog and boardwalk are beautiful year around. A great place to stop on one's way to work or home and just have a few moments of serenity in a natural setting. It so close to everything that you can go for hours or just a few minutes.

This was a beautiful place and we we very lucky to visit during a record high temperature day. The day was absolutely beautiful and many trees had already turned so we enjoyed and amazing display of reds and yellows mixed in with the greens. It was crowded yet we still enjoyed the walk. The boardwalk goes through different habitats of... More

Ideal to get close to nature in a typical Maine topography setting. Nothing to improve! Sorry we missed the special day coming up, because the first-hand explanations are better than any explanatory boards.

This is a great walking path where you're able to see the Orono Bog. They have a couple of rest areas with benches and scenic viewing areas. Typically lots of wildlife and there are informative signs around describing the various plant and animal life. I haven't been since they renovated the boards, but I've heard it's even nicer now!

Beautiful place for a quiet walk. The loop is about one mile around with plenty of benches and informational signs throughout. It has a wide enough area for wheelchairs and there is one available in the cabin---just ask the volunteer docent there if you need to borrow it. I enjoy going out there and seeing how much the flora change... More
