This is a must-do trail in Acadia! It is easy and gorgeous. Everyone from 4 to 68 loved it. We went early in the morning and had no crowds as a result.

I walked this path twice during our stay in Bar Harbor. It's a quieter place than downtown, and I really enjoyed it. Beautiful houses on one side, gorgeous view of the water on the other. Very easy and flat walk and there are various ways...More

This is an easy walk that affords plenty of water views. During our visit in July, the breeze was so nice.

I was able to finish my morning runs on the Shore Path most mornings. The view was outstanding especially when fog over the ocean had not yet lifted. A great evening stroll too.

Easy flat walk with nice views. Some people brought a picnic lunch. It can get crowded at peak times - typically mid day.

Great walk! Going from sand beach to thunder hole and then in to Gorham Mountain and back is well worth a couple of hours!

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.
