My husband and I took advantage of this beautiful walk several times while we were in Bar Harbor. It was a relaxing walk at the end of a busy day - - just strolling along and enjoying the beauty of the surroundings.

Great views with a little history tour with the history signs. Great for a loop walk through town. Trail is perfect for nice 2 + mile jogs.

We had a beautiful fall day to do this walk along the shore. The crisp fall air actually warmed for us. The trees were beginning to turn, a bit late, but made us feel a bit of fall.

This is a pleasant little walk from the dock in town that takes you up around the corner along the sea wall. It enables you to see a bit more of the harbour and town. It's a nice little afternoon trot especially if the weather...More

Short, unbelievably scenic stroll right along the coast of Bar Harbor. Absolutely lovely! We especially enjoyed learning a little history by seeing the classic "summer houses" and the Balance Rock.

When I was in Bar Harbor in mid October, we were blessed with unusually warm weather. I didn't walk all around the path (I was here for a day off a cruise ship) but I walked a bit enjoying the beautiful scenery

This was just more of the beautiful coastline Maine scenery. When we visited, there was actually a man down on the rocks painting a picture of this photo.

Not sure. I was say from downtown to the end probably a little less than a mile. Lots of opportunity to view the ocean, flowers, and homes.
