Very nice easy trails. Great for families or lone walkers. The improved roads are the easiest. The improved trails are very good but narrower with stumps and rocks sticking up. The unimproved trails are awesome if you want to be in the woods but they are rougher and more hilly. If going in hunting season blaze orange is a good idea as this boarders many other hunting areas. There are other trail systems that link in so you can go all day. Met walkers and bikers. Very nice to have so close to town but still be able to be alone in the woods. Saw lots of birds, squirrels and chipmunks. Word of caution with dogs, there are a lot of porcupines in the area so be aware about them getting quilled.

I am not an outdoors person. I like a nice walk and taking photos. This walk was nice but is lacking signage/trail markers in the fields especially. Essentially an improved game trail. Not for the mobility challanged.

Quite the scenic walk in autumn. It’s closed for the season, but definitely worth checking out!

Fun experience! Just be aware that it’s closing down for season on October 13th.

Nice loop with our dog. Lots of rocks and tree roots on path so hiking books are a good idea. Lots of shade.

Fun place to run

It was our first time using this trail .My daughter and grandsons ages 12,9,& 3. There were lots of rocks and tree roots you just have to pay attention where you stepped.But we all had great time.

This was a really nice little walk. This is a very claiming walk.

So many birds! Including baby Virginia Rail.

Nice easy walk through the bog

easy flat trail through really beautiful landscape!

Like a magical different planet. Holy wow

Great trail system that's well maintained! the trails are flat with the occasional small hill so this is great for families with young children.

A really relaxing walk. Something different you don’t see everywhere.

Was a nice walk but early spring so the ground was a bit wet with downed trees across path. They were in the middle of cleanup so good to know the trail is maintained.

Very easy for everyone. You can't bring your dogs on the board walk but being out in the big is a beautiful treat for all to enjoy. There are many benches along the way for those who need a rest.n

so we'll marked and easy to follow. beautiful trees and side trails.

One of my absolute favorite things in Bangor, Maine. This is the road-less-traveled in the City Forest, where only the bravest seem to venture. Clocking in at 3.8 miles round trip, this trail is great for bikers, runners and cross-country skiiers alike. Unlike the Main Loop Trail which is a gravel path, this one isn't the best for strollers (not impossible, but it's not as flat).

Was in town waiting for a flight. Trail was so great I did it twice. Very pretty. Felt very safe due to activity on the trail.

I love this walk. Bogs are unique and this bog walk offers a unique opportunity to see one up close. Thanks information stations along the way are very helpful. If you are really lucky you may get a ranger to walk with you!

Really neat to see the progression from forest to bog. Accessible to anyone and educational signs is what makes this trail really neat!

Love the view even on a cloudy day! Can get congested if there is a lot of people on the walk!
