I've had the pleasure of going to the Orono Bog Boardwalk several times as an undergraduate student at UMaine. Beautiful place for families, nature walks, and first-dates. It's amazing that nature this lovely is so close by to local shops and a university.

Easy walk over the bog on the boardwalk. Interesting to see all the different vegetation. Great trails for hiking if you are more ambitious.

We spent about one hour walking the boardwalk and were quite impressed by the uniqueness of the bog and the surrounding foliage. Well worth the stop if you are in Orono ME. Remember to bring your camera!

Pretty walk over the bog on decking, some sections along the walk have railings. Some of the walk is shaded with trees which helps on hot days. One of my favorite places to walk and it's not a strenuous walk either.

This boardwalk was very fun! My husband and I were able to go for a nice walk and learn things along the way. There are informative boards along the way where we learned about what is in Maine's woods from animals to plants and trees!...More

It was a nice walk but we didn't see any animals or interesting plants. Maybe we need to come back a different week.
