Shore path is closer to town than Ocean Trail but beautiful

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... read more

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!

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!
