This path is an easy walk around the shoreline of Bar Harbor - a nice way to see some of the beautiful homes along the coast as well as the stunning landscape. There are numerous signs along the way that provides the history of the area - so it is also an easy leanring experience.

FYI: Not to be confused with "Ocean trail," which is at Acadia Park, is a "hike" and much more extensive. Bar Harbor is simply lovely with motorboats and sailboats dotting the harbor . . . mountains and Islands as a backdrop and in my case: it was sunny and warm as well :) This is a fairly short (I believe...

We look forward to our walks on the shore path every time we visit. Don't forget to take your picture next to balance rock and enjoy the magnificent views of Frenchman's Bay.

Very short but beautiful little path that winds around the coastal edge of Bar Harbor. This is something that can be done by foot, with a stroller or wheelchair etc. Views are beautiful. This is not so much a hike as it is a stroll.

Not a real hike. A lovely walk with lots of people. We ended up stopping along the path and sitting on the rocks to see the scenery. If you seek privacy with your views this is not your place. If you want views, walk toward the water at the first dirt path. That is as gorgeous as it gets. PS... More

Easy, short path by the shore and into town. When you make the turn towards town, keep your eyes open for deer :)

We discovered this path accidentally on our last evening in Bar Harbor. We loved the scenery and the signs explaining each place. We only wish we knew sooner! Why didn't the person at the Visitor's Center promote this?
