Kanokolus Bog, Unity


  • Preserve Size: 189 acres
  • Trail Mileage: 1.6 miles in network
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: raised bog, forested wetlands, woods, small field

The trail here when we visited was a little overgrown and unkempt, but while that can make for some difficulty walking at times, it’s nice to visit a place that doesn’t appear to attract too many human visitors. The land is protected by Sebasticook Regional Land Trust.

In .3 miles after leaving the trailhead, you’ll reach a short side trail blazed yellow to the bog that was quite wild. The footpath connects to a snowmobile trail. Turn right and follow it about .15 mile to the bog’s edge.

The main trail continues another .5 miles through woods and a small meadow. It concludes with a .5-mile loop near Bacon Brook and the bog. It’s hard to see the bog through the trees unless you go off path.

Directions: The trailhead and small parking area is off Route 202, about 3.5 miles from downtown Unity on the left (east).


Let me know if you have any trail updates or corrections!
