From the Sullivan side of the Hancock-Sullivan Bridge on coastal US-1: drive 3.4 miles, take a left on Punkinville Road (just before Sumner High School), drive 2 miles and bear left onto Punkin Ledge Road, then drive 0.7 miles to the Schoodic Bog Rd on your left. Parking may be found a short distance down Schoodic Bog Road, on the right.
Schoodic Bog is located at the foot of Schoodic Mountain in Sullivan. From the parking lot, an easy gravel path heads out to the bog. Most of the hike is on old gravel roads and the gravel multi-use Down East Sunrise Trail. The trail is marked with blue diamond FBC signs posted along trees beside the road. There is a small detour off the gravel trail where beavers have flooded the road. Follow the detour trail through woods and across bog bridging over a small brook back to the original trail. The Schoodic Bog Trail ends at the Down East Sunrise Trail. Turn right and follow the Down East Sunrise Trail to reach the 150-acre Schoodic Bog, filled with water lilies, cattails, carnivorous pitcher plants, beavers, eastern painted turtles, and other wildlife.
