We were lucky to walk the path the night of the super moon. Wonderful views and cute houses along the path. Great place to take pictures of the boats and cruise ships coming in and out of the harbor.

This was our first stop after arriving in downtown Bar Harbor. A nice walk along the water with historical info along the way. Really set the scene for the rest of our day downtown!

Great path to take a leisurely stroll to soak in the every changing scenery. There are mountains, cliffs, beaches, boulders, peaks, valleys, anything a nature lover would want to absorb in a view.

We were lucky the house we rented was right off the Shore Path! It is a great walk to town and lovely views. We enjoyed the ocean views and the beautiful houses that line the shore path as well!

Shore Path is easy to stroll or jog. Especially lovely on summer mornings with fantastic views with great ocean breeze - must do if you are in Bar Harbor!

This was a lovely walk and a good introduction to the area. On one side you could see some lovely private homes (most had donated right of way) and rocks, waves and water on the other. I highly recommend this walk.

This a mile-long path, with gravel surface, that runs along the rocky beach. There are some interesting houses to look at from the path, and some nice seaviews, but this is not an attraction in itself - it is exactly what it says it is.

Great walk along the bay and away from the main shopping district. At times the path is a little tough, but overall it is a pleasant walk
