A mostly flat trail running from Otter Cliffs to the Sandy Beach. Nice shade in places and several great views. Thunder Hole is on the trail and there is a shop across the street. Get there early both for parking and a relatively uncrowded trail.

This is surely one of the loveliest hikes in Maine--and very easy walking for the entire trip. It was bustling but not terribly crowded and the views of the ocean are spectacular.

Acadia at its best. A 2 mile walk sometimes along the road on a dirt path, sometimes on a dirt path closer to the cliffs' edges, but always beautiful!

We connected Sand Peach to Otter Point and then caught the free shuttle back to hotel. Worked great. Bring the camera and don't rush it for the views and optional side trails. A hit of the trip.

Natural beauty abounds in fact can call to you from your hotel room. This trail is a gem - especially away from the pier where there is much hustle and bustle. I only wish it were a few miles longer. The path is quite easy to traverse for all abilities!
