We took a stroll based on a shopkeepers recommendation. This was a nice little diversion that didn't take much time and gave us some beautiful pictures. Balance rock is worth the trip if you are into history. The walk back was not bad considering we were staying at the Acadia Hotel.

this was one of our highlights of our visit to Bar Harbor. A wonderful shoreline walk past some really nice house. the pebble beach is very interesting when the surf crashes in. About an hour to walk. A couple of trails lead up thru the neighborhood to get you back into the main street of town. they are marked but... More

I was able to access this path from outside the Bar Harbor Grand hotel. It's a nice walk with a very large Rock from 10,000 years ago. Great for picture taking.

Very pleasant, uncrowded walk early in the morning. Great for photos of lobster boats and the sun shining on the rocks.

This was great to take a morning walk for the sunrise. We enjoyed the sound of the water hitting the shore and stacking some rocks

My wife and I traditionally take this walk every year to start our Bar Harbor vacation. It is always lovely. Best time is probably in the morning sun. Low tide is good to get a closeup view of Balance Rock. But whenever you go you are guaranteed to see something to inspire, uplift, and delight, as long as you keep... More

Every year we make it a point to walk the shore path. The ocean views are breathtaking, especially when the ships are docked. stop and smell the roses along your walk, too and build a cairn above the breakers. Well worth the hour you will spend going to the endand back.

It is a peaceful and fun walk along a stretch of Bar Harbor's waterfront. Thank you's go to the shorefront owners who all gave permission for this unique walk.

This path starts near Agamont Park and goes along the shore, giving great views of the bay. Near the balanced rock, people have made their own stacks of rocks, kind of an intetesting folk art.

This is a nice, short walk along the ocean for everyone, especially those who cannot hike the more strenuous trails in the park. You do pass by several places such as the Bar Harbor Inn, private homes and bed and breakfast places. The walk is short and when it ends you do have to double back, but there are great... More
