We did the Orono Bog Walk and I must say I am so glad we did. It was completely unique experience and was really enjoyable.

Took the pup out to the Bangor City Forest walking trails. The trails are dog friendly, the bog walk isn't. A good place to walk for a while for beginners and a great place to go long distance for avid outdoor runners. I love that it's always clean so we don't have to worry about our puppy eating garbage. There are even puppy vault bags provided near the entrance to ensure the Forest stays clean. My wife, puppy, and I love these trails.
Very nice woods and graveled walkways. Looked well maintained. There were bogs off the walkway and many mosquitoes. Trails were well marked and easy to follow.
