  • I am from Maine but moved to Virginia 3yrs ago. While I was back visiting in Maine I finally got to visit the Orono Bog Board Walk. This is a very beautiful place!! Myself, my Daughter & Granddaughters enjoyed this more than you can imagine!! It is very well maintained & absolutely gorgeous!!
  • 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!
  • I totally underestimatedifferent what this wonderful place could be. My husband and I loved it. The bog walk is so cool and we'll taken care of.
  • Very cool scenery and many enjoyable walking trails. I'd definitely go back if I were ever in the area again.
  • Nice easy walk, with places to sit and read informational plaques along the way.
