Some nice little tidbits to see & read for the "museum in the streets" along the way. On a warmer day we'd have spent more time checking out the Balanced Rock. Not as impressive as the one on the South Bubble, but pretty cool anyhow.

Lovely scenic path from the Town Pier to many points along the way... we walk both directions, leaving from our B & B past the hospital. Watch boat traffic in the Harbor, wildlife, admire rock formations and check out lovely, private homes. Not too long, and flat enough for sandals. We found a bees nest at a bench along the... More

We walked the shore path quite a few times during our visit to Bar Harbor. Very peaceful and a nice scenic view. Plus, great way to see some of the amazing homes in Bar Harbor.

We took this walk after dinner. It starts in town by the park and pier and follows the shoreline. Easy walking. Relaxing. Beautiful views of the ocean, rocks, the back of some mansions, wild roses, sailboats, etc. Once we reached the end we turned around and came back on the same path. At the end there is a very short... More

It was early in the season and a rough winter. The ocean is pretty and I love the sound of the waves crashing on the shore. The bald eagle showed up which is always great to watch.

The sand is not as nice as the sand beach but it gives a different look. You look south to see the land bridge to Bar Island that we saw at both high tide (covered) and low tide totally exposed. Can not say enough about the photo ops along the way and always a fellow tourist to take your camera... More

We walked out across the sandbar at low tide and it was a lot of fun. We saw seals and eagles and the hike up the hill gave us a great view of the village.

We have done this path many times and it never gets old. It is nice to do this after a dinner in Bar harbor since it is right there. Just strolling along the ocean in the evening is simply relaxing

We had lunch downtown and discovered this pretty walk beside the water. It has nice views of the boats coming and going. We enjoyed taking pictures and throwing rocks in the water.

If your in town take advantage of this trail! Very few people are ever on it and its a great ocean walk where you can walk down the beaches if you'd like. They have wonderful flowers along the way as well!
