If you are poking around Bar Harbor, be sure to walk the Shore Path. It's only a mile long and is a nice stroll. The kids loved climbing along the rocks as we walked.

How nice that The Shore Path is available to Bar Harbor visitors. Just the right distance for an early morning or after dinner stroll. A place for imaginations to roam while looking out on the harbor. Well maintained, and wheel chair accessible (almost entirely). A must walk for any visitor to Bar Harbir.

Cute little rock path that leads around the harbor. Fun, easy walk with history lessons along the way. This was very informative and a nice evening walk.

Lovely, quiet, and scenic path by the harbor with beautiful ocean views but no shopping or activities until you get to the end. Best for morning jogs or nature walks.

This is an easy, beautiful walk along the ocean. This time of year there are a lot of rose hips in bloom.

This is a beautiful path that goes along the shore in Bar Harbor. It is easy walking and has amazing views of the harbor. If you are incline to want food or drink, it goes right by the BAR HARBOR INN. They have a great outdoor patio!
