What would a trip to Bar Harbor be without a journey down to the sand "bar" that gives the town it's name. For the unfamiliar, the sand bar is exposed at low tide. Over the next few hours when the tide comes in -- the bar eventually fills in with water from the ocean. You have to check the tide charts to know when to arrive if you would like to walk out on the bar and over to Bar Island. Once you get to the island there is a path to a trail that takes you up to the top of the isalnd where you get a great view of the town of Bar Harbor. Bring a camera because it is a great photo op. The trail involves a little bit of climbing but nothing too strenuous. However, you must keep your eye on the time and be sure to leave the island with enough time to walk back to the town and across the bar without having to swim!
