We walked the path from the Bar Harbor Inn to the other end. It is about a mile long, and the only drawback would be the lack of access or regress anywhere in the middle. Otherwise, the scenery is spectacular!

This is an easy, level stroll, perfect for after dinner. It goes by Balance Rock, Albert Meadow and an old 'cottage' or two with views of the harbor, breakwater, and the Egg Rock Light. There are benches along the way to stop and take in the scene.

This path runs along the shore from Sand Beach to Otter Cliffs in Acadia National Park. It is a paved path and you can go the entire distance or turn around at any point. There are many places to stop and listen to the surf. The picture taking is superb!

A nice quiet walk along the rocky beach. Very scenic and peaceful. Very east walk, easy terrain. A bit cool in early May, and windy by the shoreline. Might need a sweatshirt.

About a mile long, this is a nice gentle easy walk that takes you along the shore. Starting at one end of Main Street, you walk along the path until you come to a fence, then walk up one block and you are back on Main Street. Along the way, there are interesting and informative boards with historical information displayed.

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.
