Loved the walk along the water past some beautiful homes and gardens. Only dislike was that it ended too soon.

Easy Path. No climbing. The scenery is spectacular: the sea, offshore islands, boats, etc. Homes along the Path are historic.

This is a leisurely walk along the shore in front of the Bar Harbor Inn and private homes. It can become congested depending on the weather and number of visitors in town. The view of the bay is beautiful.

We've been coming to Bar Harbor for years and just found this lovely shore path this year.

It's like walking into a painting! Beautiful setting, nostalgic and breathtaking . The history of the individuals who planned and maintained this community is astonishing.
