Orono Bog Boardwalk

The 4,200-foot Orono Bog Boardwalk opened in June 2003. It is easily accessed via Bangor City Forest and is wheelchair accessible. Educational guided walks are offered through this outstanding example of a raised peat bog with various habitat types. It is a key parcel in the Caribou Bog Penjajawoc Conservation Project. The area was designated as a National Natural Landmark by the National Park Service in 1974. The area was envisioned and created by Ronald B. Davis in 2001. It was built in a partnership among the OLT, UMaine’s College of Natural Sciences, and the City of Bangor. The original wooden boardwalk has been completely rebuilt with composite materials – making a much more durable and wheelchair accessible surface.  This work was completed in 2019.  For more information and directions visit: www.oronobogwalk.org.
