We combined Wonderland and Ship Harbor by climbing on the shore/rocks from one to the other. The trail is super easy (maybe even a bit boring) but the shore is super fun and beautiful. Especially with kids its a lot of fun.

This is a short access path to a rocky beach, not a hike. The beach area is great, not crowded. Lots of rocks to explore with no climbing required. We were there while the tide was out. Lots of tide pools and cool rocks exposed. Might not be as good during high tide. Tie this into a trip to Bass Harbor light house. you can easily spend an hour or so exploring the rocks in each place to make a nice easy afternoon outing.

Super easy walk. We were here about 2 hours before high tide and the tide pools had lots of fascinating things to see. Enough rocky coastline to walk down and get away from the crowds by the sandy part of the beach. Would love to bring our kids here next time.

Beautiful trail. The far end of the trail takes you to a nice rocky beach that the kids loved.

Quick, easy hike. Only recommendation is if you’re staying at Seawall Campground, don’t walk to this hike, even though it’s very nearby. Cars drive very fast along the road and in sections there is almost no shoulder.

The kids were expecting a bit more from this, but it was worth doing. It was very foggy so the views were just ok. Highlights were stacking rocks and feeling the cold water run over our feet as the tide went out.

Wonderful! Super flat and easy. Walk to the sea with amazing plants and beautiful trees filled with lace lichen. Spider webs everywhere during certain times of year. One of the very best hikes in Acadia.

Super easy. Keep on the trail to go further up the coast to avoid the crowds and walk back along the rocky coast.
