  • Loved learning different things about the wildlife in the area, and it is a good walk. Once we finished with the bog area, we kept walking in the trails.  more »
  • Where else can one walk through a bog? The boardwalk has been almost completely redone with Trex planking and there are benches periodically so you can sit down to drink in the beauty that surrounds y...  more »
  • The Orono Bog should not be missed. It's a beautiful, quiet, amazing place. Any trip to Orono should include a trip to the bog.  more »
  • The Bog walk is one of the most beautiful walks I have been on, gorgeous scenery and easy enough that everyone can enjoy it. I went several times last year and was looking forward to going again today, opening day for the walk this year (sadly it is pouring buckets). The walk is made partly of beautiful composite sections, and partly of older wooden ones which are being replaced with composite when they can be. The walk has, in my opinion, two different parts. The first section is still somewhat inside the forest, and you can see beautiful undergrowth among the trees, as well as frogs, squirrels and birds. The majority of the walk is out over the open Bog, and you can see for miles in some spots. The scenery is unique to any other experience I have had, and can be very refreshing. Along the walk are several spots where there are informational boards, as well as benches periodically throughout to rest at. The Bog walk is an experience I recommend to everyone and anyone who is in Bangor, you don't want to miss it!
  • Beautiful place to walk through. I can't believe that it's only 2 miles from the Bangor Mall. Feels like the middle of nowhere. 😊
  • An amazing walking area which you enjoy with the environmental beauty and landscapes. Its amazing to go in early morning or in evening.
  • one of a kind natural wonder in this area.
  • The boardwalk allows people to closely observe a unique habitat without causing damage to the space. The signs along the walk are interesting and markedly improve the experience.
