Ocean Path, Bar Harbor

(4.7/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Set within a national park, Ocean Path winds along the rugged coast and offers scenic views of the ocean. An easy, accessible gravel path takes you through a sweet-smelling spruce forest; along the way, a few small trails and rocky steps can bring you closer to the water. Explore the rocky ledges and hidden coves, but beware of the waves, which can get quite large at times. Early mornings and late afternoons see fewer crowds on this much-frequented path. To visit Ocean Path and get the most from your holiday in Bar Harbor, create itinerary details personal to you using our Bar Harbor vacation generator.
