“A HIGHLIGHT OF ACADIA NATIONAL PARK”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

The Ocean Trail on any day is a real treat. It is a long walking trail along the ocean so it is good for exercise and sightseeing at the same time. No hill. Totally flat. There are well marked places of interest at which to stop. We spent almost two hours and the trail would have taken us further. Lovely . Try to get there early as the parking fills up fast.

“Beautiful place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

We did this walk as part of our tour through Acadia National Park. The whole area has the most beautiful scenery and the trail allowed us to see it up front. There is a well devised and maintained path which follows the coastline, we were lucky to have perfect weather, so it was all most enjoyable. Do not leave this area without visiting the park and walking the trail - highlight of our trip!

“Find it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

Our hotel consierge directed us to find the little path connected to the Ocean Trail and we were so glad he did. A morning walk watching the sun come up was what makes us want to go back to Bar Harbor...and the shops...and the restaurants...and the Bar Harbor Grand...Awesome place!

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

"Big bang" theory? I don't think so. As I heard another visitor say to her hubby, "This place is insanely beautiful." Perfectly described.

“Challenging”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Always like a challenge so hiking on cliffs always fun and exciting. Not many people hike the coast line just beautiful.
