Trip Planner: USA / Maine / DownEast and Acadia Maine / Mount Desert Island / Bar Harbor / Shore Path
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.
Shore Path reviews
This is a nice short trek starting at Agamont Park along the shoreline. The path is not entirely paved but is well maintained. There will be many opportunities to leave the path for the shoreline... more »
Easy walk. Maybe a mile one way. Worth the time. Climb down onto the rocks. Safety first. Great pictures. Scenic and great. more »
