Simple hike, worked well for small dogs and would be good for kids too. Ends at a nice beach area of rocks and tide pools— these are very slippery, so use caution.

Decent walk to the shore through different environments. At low tide you can walk along the rocks on shore, but don't expect tide pools. Beware the mosquitos!

Decent easy walk to the shore. At low tide you can walk along the rocks on the coast, but don't expect tide pools.

Short and nice trail to the shore. Good for toddlers especially at low tide where they can explore the tidal pool. Not really suitable for strollers, even if doable. There’s a bit of mosquitoes on the path but nothing unbearable.

About 10 stalls at the trail head. Don’t forget your passion the dash. Trail is well marked. Lots of little social paths.

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.

Nice short walk to the shore. Good tidal pools to find hermit crabs and other neat stuff.

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.
