“Beautiful”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

I've been on the bog walk a few times with my parents. It's like our ritual before they leave me at UMaine. It's just a beautiful scenery of trees and shrubbery, and occasionally an animal or two. There are signs along the way to educate you on what you are looking at. It's not a very long walk, and it's at your own pace. If you are just looking for a leisurely walk, this is a great place to go

“Love it.”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

A great place to visit. Looks different every time, and always beautiful. Sometimes there's a volunteer naturalist at the entrance, which is really neat.

“Cornicopia of Maine Environment”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

The bog walk is great. They have a number of planned events and are currently raising money for an endowment. The variety of plant & animal life as well as the unique opportunity to enjoy one of very few "floating bogs," makes this place special.
Bring the kids and bring the "bug dope" as the black flies and mosquitoes can be active.

“Easy Walk- Great For Families”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

The trail is well maintained with lots of places to stop and sit. It's about a mile long loop so its a great walk for small kids or just going on a light stroll through the woods.

This is a hidden treasure near the Bangor Mall. You get to it from the Bangor Forest loop trail.
