Welcome from the Director:
Bog Boardwalk has become a premier destination in the Bangor/Orono area for
persons wishing to experience the beauty and fascinating plants and animals of
a Maine bog. The 1-mile boardwalk loop trail begins at the forested wetland
edge in the Bangor City Forest, and after 800 feet crosses the town line into
the University of Maine owned part of the bog in Orono. Along the way, it
passes through changing vegetation and environments on its way to the open,
peat moss carpeted center of the Orono Bog.
visitors encounter a series of well designed, full color signs with
illustrations of common species of bog plants and animals, and explanations to
go along with them. Many visitors return to the boardwalk, again and again,
to observe the colorful bog and to absorb its tranquil beauty over the
changing seasons. The boardwalk is wheelchair-friendly facility. Benches for
rest and contemplation are provided at least every 200 feet.
encourage you to take advantage of Nature walks scheduled for this season (more info).
All trips guided by experts in their respective fields.
time in the bog!
