A must if you go to Bar Harbor, it leads from the 'land bridge' and it's about a mile to the top point.

The trails were well marked and no trace of litter. Rangers were stationed strategically, difficulty ratings were clearly marked. Probably the most beautiful park I've visited.

Watch for low tide and take a walk over to Bar Island! Easy walk from the West Street Hotel.. Good half hour or less walk up a slight grade to top of Bar Island.. beautiful view of harbor!
