This path is about a mile long and runs along Frenchman's Bay from Agamont Park in front of the Bar Harbor Inn. It offers great views of the water, shoreline, and boats in the bay.

Made our way down here just after sunrise (well-worth making the effort to do) and the journey was spectacular. The walk from Bar Harbor is nice and an easy way to enjoy some beauty.

We fell in love with Acadia 33 years ago and if health allows we will continue to visit for the rest of our lives. The shore path allows you easy access to wonderful views and right in the town of Bar Harbor

This is a very easy and beautiful path to take a walk on. The views of the oceans are great and houses and large gardens along the path are grand as well.

We stumbled on the Shore Path and it was a wonderful way to learn about the start of Bar Harbor tourism and vacation spot. Informative placards along the path were very well presented. This is also a nice change of pace from the busy sidewalks...More

Our innkeeper made a point of telling us to use the Shore Path as an actual means to get to a destination. That is to say after he recommended we have a drink at Gaylin's downtown, we were instructed to use the Shore Path to...More

There is a trolley tour but if you have a car you can drive around and stop at all of the scenic lookouts and park and hike too. You can bring or rent bikes and bike the carriage trails as well.
