“Beautiful and serene”

Orono Bog Boardwalk
Ranked #1 of 10 things to do in Orono
Attraction details

Close to Bangor Mall but feels a million miles away from the hustle and bustle. Once you get out of the wooded area and enter the open bog the views are just stunning. Rare bog plants and birds are at home in the bog and often can be seen from the walk.

There were so many Lupines and Lady Slippers this time of year it was amazing. The only thing we found was the trails could have been marked a bit better. There are a couple of parking lots, we had to walk a bit further to find the one we parked in. Lots of people were visiting the Bog Walk and using the trails.

Great opportunity to walk in a peat bog and see all the carnivorous plants and take in a wonderful wetland. It is self guided and full of unusual plants. We saw a bear there once and lots of birds, deer and snakes. The school kids love the walk. The boardwalk is wheelchair accessible and there are many trails around. Hard to believe a city the size of Bangor really has the foresight to have a preserved park like this. Any season.

Awesome! Just beautiful and it is a great way to see the bog otherwise we wouldn't be able to get to see it so intimately

Very rare species to see, the spring is the best. It's an easy walk and quite beautiful. Cost is a donation to the preservation of the bog. Well worth saving.
