We strolled the Shore Path while in Acadia National Park. It is an easy walk along the ocean, and it takes you to several of the parks highlights. We took a light picnic and walked down to the ocean from the path to have lunch on the rocks. It was wonderful! This path does wander close to the road, so be careful if you're taking children with you. We only did about half of it, then retraced our steps and drove the rest of the way. I highly recommend this, as well as everything else in Acadia National Park.

The Hikers pathway around Bar Harbor marina is a beautiful walk along the shore which provides a very good view of the Harbor and the islands within the bay. You can witness cruise ships berthed very often as seen in one of the photographs. Its a beautiful way to unwind and immerse yourself in bay watching.

This was an easy walk along the ocean front. Great views. Actually saw a seal on the coast. There are some spots where you can sit and take it in.

Walking along the shore path you appreciate the beauty of this area. The bustle of the main street is left behind and you can admire the boats coming and going. You might be lucky enough to see the schooner put its sails up! Watch out for puddles if it has been raining! Definitely a good way to start the day.

We took the Shore Path from downtown Bar Harbor and it was fantastic. It is a nice little stroll overlooking the harbor that has cruise ships and sail boats. It winds around the harbor past hotels and quaint shops to browse in. A Must do.
