Such a pleasant walk. We only did a short portion, but enjoyed the scenery all around. Talked with some folks just coming off the cruise ship that was docked for the day. Would not have wanted to miss this spot

The Ocean Trail is a very easy walk along Frenchman Bay. There are a number of photo ops, starting at Town Pier where the trail begins - lots of boats of various sizes, shapes and colors. There were a couple of cruise ships in the bay the day I walked the trail. Lots of ducks, gulls and other birds were perched on the rocks just below the trail. Some very nice homes and gardens on the land side of the trail also offer nice photo opportunities. At the end of the mile, or so, trail, you can turn around and walk back the way you came or, you can turn right, walk a couple of blocks and be on Main Street where you'll find lots of shops.

Great trail, easy access and easy to walk. The views are almost breathtaking. The air is pleases the senses of smell, sight, and touch.

Again, nice easy walk... worth the time, beautiful views on the southeast side of MDI. Very dramatic... quite scenic. One of the reasons you come to Acadia.

This is a great low impact trail off the loop roard in Acadia National Park along several miles of the coast line. It runs along the rocky and wooded cliffs along the coast. It features plenty of great views and enables you to get as close as you want to the edge. The trail runs about 2 miles one way. There are several parking lots along the way from which you can jump onto the trail.
