Gorgeous views and peaceful walk along the waterfront in Bar Harbor. Check out the shore path to get a little tranquility away from the hub bub of downtown Bar Harbor. I parked at the eastern end of the path and walked back towards town in the early morning to catch the sun rise. Path is relatively level with some benches... More

Great views, easy walk, and best of all, it's free. View the surrounding islands, cruise ships in port, and one of the schooners as it sets sail.

The shore path goes around the end of town and is two miles long. It starts at the Bar Harbor Inn and ends when there is no more path. You pass many beautiful huge houses with great lawns, and on your other side is the sea and the rocks leading down to it. The path is concrete so it is... More

The Shore path in Bar Harbor is an easy walk along the shore. Muddy in spots but a great spot to watch a sunrise.

We strolled the Shore Path while in Acadia National Park. It is an easy walk along the ocean, and it takes you to several of the parks highlights. We took a light picnic and walked down to the ocean from the path to have lunch on the rocks. It was wonderful! This path does wander close to the road, so... More

The Hikers pathway around Bar Harbor marina is a beautiful walk along the shore which provides a very good view of the Harbor and the islands within the bay. You can witness cruise ships berthed very often as seen in one of the photographs. Its a beautiful way to unwind and immerse yourself in bay watching.

This was an easy walk along the ocean front. Great views. Actually saw a seal on the coast. There are some spots where you can sit and take it in.

Walking along the shore path you appreciate the beauty of this area. The bustle of the main street is left behind and you can admire the boats coming and going. You might be lucky enough to see the schooner put its sails up! Watch out for puddles if it has been raining! Definitely a good way to start the day.

We took the Shore Path from downtown Bar Harbor and it was fantastic. It is a nice little stroll overlooking the harbor that has cruise ships and sail boats. It winds around the harbor past hotels and quaint shops to browse in. A Must do.
