Easy walking trail just outside of the Reading Room restaurant and Bar Harbor Inn. Saw sunset as we walked, great rock formations and flowers! Nice walking right in the "back yards" of residents.

This is an easy walk down the shore at Bar Harbor. If you walk all the way to the end of the path, you can see some private homes's lawns that look over the Bay. Great photo opportunities and a nice way to get a feel of the Bay. We got to see fresh lobsters brought into the harbor and... More

What a fantastic journey, walking along the rugged shoreway, watching the sailboats and cruisers skim along the bay. The path is marked along the way with interesting bits of history. We went to the path at sunset one evening and then twice to see the sunrise. What great photos we got!

The shore path is an easy walk along the shore of Bar Harbor, Maine. It runs from the warf at the bottom of Main and West Streets about 3/4 of a mile or so along the east coast of Mt. Desert Island. Its a well maintained, paved path and two people can easily walk side by side on it. There... More

Every morning I walked from my Inn to the shore path and then walked the shore path which goes along Frenchman's Bay. The round trip for me was a nice 4 mile walk that could not be more beautiful and relaxing.

This ran right in front of our hotel and was an easy walk into town. Walking to the end is an easy walk in front of beautiful properties and right next to the bay.

We walked alongside the Shore Path at sunset and it was stunning. It was a great post-cocktail pre-dinner stroll into town.

This is a nice easy walk along the road/ocean. At certain points, there are beautiful views of the ocean and rocks. I would suggest venturing off of the path itself onto the rocks. My boyfriend and I walked this path during low tide, so we were able to walk across the rocks right next to the ocean and then climb... More

I have always loved this path. Just make sure your kids stay on the path and they will be fine at points the side of the path is a sheer drop but you can see it and my kids were fine I just made them stay on the path of course they are little.
