Sklar Park (Orono)

I explored Sklar Park in Orono this morning with a group of friends.  The 40 acre park, owned by the Town of Orono and managed by the Orono Land Trust, features a 3.5 mile trail network that runs through woods and past a brook.   There are trails that lead from the park to nearby Rampe Woods as well as a local retirement community and a Boy Scout office.

We started our hike at the Boy Scout office as it offered a convenient meeting spot right off of I-95.  The trail leading from the parking lot wasn't well marked at first but after a brief detour we found it and were able to easily follow it.  There are a number of trails in the area so I'd recommend bringing a map of the area with you (you can find one here).   

The trail was flat and wooded and there were many animal tracks.  The trail had many icy spots (it was 20 degrees today) and I imagine that the trail would be quite wet during warmer weather.   

Here is a map of our hike.  We hiked approximately 1.6 miles.
