“Beautiful views”
Reviewed August 28, 2014

Relatively easy walking trail with the most gorgeous views and rock formations, just had the best time exploring, climbing the rocks, watching the tide come, picnicking, etc. A must do in Acadia

“Easy beautiful walk”
Reviewed August 27, 2014

A very easy and beautiful walk. It can be done in 30 minutes but we stop for so many pictures it took us double the time lol. It's a great way to start your visit to Bar harbor Maine.

“Not to be missed!”
Reviewed August 27, 2014

As other's have said, this is a great stroll to enjoy after a full day of seeing Acadia National Park, walking around town, having great seafood and then strolling along this beautiful trail with nature at it's finest on one side and beautiful homes and grounds on the other. It was a good place to sit and reflect on a wonderful day in this incredible area of the world!

“A great way to walk off dinner”
Reviewed August 25, 2014

We started at the harbor, then up past our hotel (Bar Harbor Inn) to the end, then up the side streets to town for desert! Beautiful views, not crowded (Mid July) and places to jump off and explore the shore line for the kids.

Reviewed August 25, 2014

Always use it in Acadia NP to see the coast and when possible get access to the rocks to water color.
