A nice walk to do to get a different view of Bar Harbor from the island. Easy leisurely walk for pets & kids as well. As the tide changes, so cool to see the sea life & shells as you walk across the landbridge. A lot people doing the same thing but you dont get a crowded feel.

Was a nice little walk but that's about it. A lot of people. Nice to do really quick while walking to food.

Walking on water? well, sort of. this hike is more neat for the fact that you walk out across a sandbar to access Bar Island at low tide. Pretty unique, and an easy hike

I guess this would be a good hike but I forgot about the tide since I'm not from around here. The trail was under water. tried to make it out but the water was cold and rising.

take the less traveled wooded trail around the perimeter of the island that you see to the left as you come on to the island across the sandbar. a much more interesting hike, would highly recommend.
