Trails Committee

There are many town-owned natural and scenic trails in Orono, including trails located in:

  • The extensive trail network behind Orono High School
  • Sklar Park
  • The Jeremiah Colburn Natural Area
  • The area along the Stillwater River

In order to effectively manage public trails, the Town has established a Trails Committee, appointed by the Town Council, which monitors trail conditions on Town lands, advises the Planning board in relation to projects that could impact the network of trails, and works with the Orono Land Trust, which maintains most of the public trails in Orono.

For more information about any Orono Trails, or for information about ways to get involved with the trails committee, please contact the Orono Parks and Recreation Department at or by calling (207) 889-6913.
