Here in Bangor, one of the parks is the Bangor woods. It is hard pack dirt trails and dirt roads, well maintained and marked. My Daughter was going for a run with her friends so I went for a woods walk. First thing I saw was a baby porcupine eating lunch. I sent a pic of him to my wife. She replied with "don't pet him". There is a great trail that goes for a little over a mile out and around over a peat bog. The peat is up to 20 feet deep and very soft. The trail is made up of about 6 foot sections that are connected together and they have styrofoam (plastic?) Floats under them. There are pitcher plants, tiny pine trees, all kinds of fun stuff. You can not step off the boardwalk, and I think if you did you would sink fast. I think if I had to cross it I would need Rycroft skishoes or something like it.
