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!

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.

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.

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 you.

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.
