The Bangor City Forest also known as the Rolland F. Perry City Forest is a large recreation area in Bangor, Maine. The park consists of approximately 650 acres (2.6 km2) and features close to 10 miles (16 km) of hiking, cycling, and cross-country skiing trails.

The park has a large parking and picnic area located at the end of Tripp Drive. Additional parking is available at the end of Kittredge Road.

The entrance to the Orono Bog Boardwalk, a one-mile (1.6 km) boardwalk over the Orono Bog, is located on East Trail approximately 0.25 miles (0.4 km) from the parking area. The boardwalk is handicapped accessible.

  • 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.
