Not a real hike. A lovely walk with lots of people. We ended up stopping along the path and sitting on the rocks to see the scenery. If you seek privacy with your views this is not your place. If you want views, walk toward the water at the first dirt path. That is as gorgeous as it gets. PS... More

We walked along the Shore Path one evening. It is about a mile long, almost completely flat and very scenic. It loops around to the downtown section of Bar Harbor and that made it convenient to get an ice-cream cone after our walk and then do a little shopping.

Nice little spot to stroll by the water's edge... we made a twilight trip of it and enjoyed the walk.

Easy, short path by the shore and into town. When you make the turn towards town, keep your eyes open for deer :)

We discovered this path accidentally on our last evening in Bar Harbor. We loved the scenery and the signs explaining each place. We only wish we knew sooner! Why didn't the person at the Visitor's Center promote this?

Beautiful path along Frenchmans bay, nice homes on one side and the bay/ocean on the other . Rocky shoreline and easy trek.

Easy walk, but you feel like you are away from Bar Harbor. Great photo opportunities. Was able to decide just how far I wanted to walk and could go back into town at any time.

Nice walking path along the rocky coast. The path is a stone path that is well maintained. Beautiful scenery.
