Flat and well kept, this trail is easy to travel and has gorgeous views. We took a large stroller and had no trouble. It's also really nice that it's close to all the shops and restaurants.

Beautiful walk (also very handicap accessible), which thankfully we don't need to look for. Easy walk for anyone with gorgeous views the whole way. Right in town.

Would never miss my morning walk if I lived here. The water views & the backyards of the estates make for a glorious experience.

This historic pathway is a wonderful place to take an afternoon stroll along the waterfront, check out the "cottages" and the beauty of Bar Harbor.

Bar Harbor is crazy busy in the summer. The shore path is right around town, but not too busy. You can see some beautiful views of the water, homes and enjoy the quiet.

Taking this walk will take you past gorgeous homes and over a rocky seashore. We passed one lone boulder many times larger than a man. We took our walk in the fog and it was still lovely.
