We loved the ocean side walk and the view of the islands. It is very easy to do, flat ground and no rocks to climb over. Mt sister has trouble hiking but this path was no problem for her.

While a short walk, it is definitely a good walk for all abilities. Nice to just walk along while having a quiet conversation. It's a great way to avoid the crowds while getting to the upper part of downtown. Definitely one of our favorites, we have both been walking it since we were kids with our own families and now...

This was a great walk and a way to escape the crowds and enjoy the harbor views. Very cool boats to see while on the walk and it goes by many homes and hotels - great way to see east coast charm in the architecture.

The shore path is a great way to get away from the bustle for awhile. A nice way to spend the morning after breakfast downtown.

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.
