Combo run walk from 1 mile out into bar harbor then round the bay and back. Relaxing and was quiet, before tourists got up! Then breakfasted at 2 Cats.

This was a walk (not a hike by any means) nestled between the town center and shoreline. It was nice, very trafficked, and brought us right from the center of town to bar island. The view of the boats was quite nice!

This trail was packed every time we were in the harbor but it’s definitely worth doing. It’s a great place for an early morning or pre/post dinner stroll. It’s easy and provides access to the water and rocks along the Harbor.

Beautiful views and stroller friendly. Very busy and full of people, but it’s still a great little walk.

Very pretty, but very crowded. If you’re looking to run, go early - before 8am. That is when the path gets crowded.

Easy walk along the shore line of Bar Harbor. Landscaping is gorgeous and accented with the constant view of a boat filled Harbor. Path intersects with an access path to City Center and a walk thru that venue to the starting point of the Shoreline path. Great evening walk.

Beautiful views. I approached from the southwest and was awed as the trees and shrubbery hide the ocean/bay view until you are almost on the path. Would recommend same approach. Easily accessible.

Highly recommend! This is a great trail that meanders just above the shoreline. Fantastic views of the harbor, ocean, and beautiful inns/houses on the other side. Easy!

Nice path along the shore, with Frenchman Bay on one side and impressive estates and hotels on the other.

It was so peaceful and beautiful on this very easy stroll. Fairly crowded, but everyone was so nice. The relevant historical placards make it an interesting walk.

Very beautiful trail along the Atlantic shoreline. We lodged overnight in a cottage in Bar Harbor which had a direct path to this trail. It's close to all the shops in Bar Harbor village and only 8-10 minute drive from here to Acadia National Park. Trail is easy, flat, wide with gravel, and has many access points below to the rocky shore and tide pools.

Lovely stroll. My husband and I 2alked the path and loved looking out into the harbor to one side and historical building and sites on the other. Very easy and some climbing spots if you are adventurous.
