Shore Path, Bar Harbor

4.8
#2 of 65 in Wildlife in Maine
Stroll the 1.6 km (1 mi) scenic Shore Path, with views of the harbor and Porcupine Islands at Acadia National Park. The trail cuts between lavish mansions and lush private gardens on one side and rugged, rocky shoreline on the other. Ocean views bring sightings of boats and ships, from tiny kayaks to large cruiseliners. Since the spot is away from the usual hotel and tourism zones, you'll have the chance to take photographs of the landscape, including tide pools. Soak up the local history via outdoor signs that mark the path and explain the significance of landmarks along the way. You can plan Bar Harbor trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

  • This is. Beautiful walk through Bar Harbor Maine. Ocean, town and beautiful old homes along the waterfront. Disregard any warning of dangerous cliff because the path is very wide and safe. Great treat...  more »
  • This was a fun short walk ending down main street away and then you can walk back on main street to town. The whole thing will take less than an hour.  more »
  • Not a long walk, but a nice walk, sadly, every day we were there a massive ugly hulking cruise ship blocked the view from the path.  more »
