We walked this path in the evenings before dinner. We found a lot of sea glass on the shore. It is not something that will take entire day but is a nice way to spend some downtime before or after dinner.

This path was created in the 1800s. It's a paved, flat easy walk along the water past beautiful homes. Nice for a stroll after dinner.

Everyone has said it already but it's true, This is a lovely and easy walk around the shoreline of the town of Bar Harbor. Appreciated the identification of various islands and homes. We were there in September but I would love to experience the seasonal changes.

The views were beautiful. We left in mid-morning in mid-August, and by the time we headed back the path had gotten very crowded. I recommend going in off peak times during the summer.

Just a lovely walk after our lunch, a good place to see the leaves of the beaten track and the lovely houses.

The shore path is a beautiful walk by the sea that loops back down main street. I recommend it for a nice stroll after dinner.

Perfect stroll to take in the waterfront along Bar Harbor. Easy access from the pier, as well as the other end, by the hospital. Jus a lovely peaceful place to spend some time in beautiful surroundings.

This walk takes you along the ocean's edge. Great view of the harbor, cruise ships and some of the homes along the path. There are markers which detail some of the historic sites along the walk. Found out later there is a map which takes you to all the markers throughout the town.
