“Easy hike to top”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

This is an easy hike up and the views across the bay to Bar Harbor are nice, but pay attention to the tides.

“Easy hiking with nice views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

Watch the tides please!!! Soooo many people get stuck every years because they don't realize how high and fast the tides can strand them out on the island. Pleasant, easy walk over to the island with easy to follow trails around the island itself. Not too dramatic as far as views but fun none-the-less. Bring a lunch and water. No bathroom.

“A must do.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

This is a must do while in Bar Harbor. Walk across the bar at low tide and head to the top of Bar Island for spectacular views.
