“A nice surprise.”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

My wife and I love this island and the trails. There were a lot of people but after entering the island we were soon alone to walk by ourselves and take in the great views.

“snowshoe on carriage trails”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

If there's snow (ha ha) it's great (there's not always snow on Mt. Desert)....but I had a 6.5 miles solo trek and only met two other people.

“Great short hike to Bar Harbor Island”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

Recommend walking across the sand bar to Bar Harbor Island at low tide. Beware though the tide comes in fast so you have a 2 hour window. It's interesting to see the changes as the tide comes in. The island itself has a short trail through the trees to a summit view point overlooking Bar Harbor.

“The Oceanside trail”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Do not miss the Oceanside trail/walk in Bar Harbor. You will see beautiful seaside homes and hearty blooming rugosa roses, smell the ocean air and enjoy a flat walk that everyone will enjoy.
