Ocean Path, Bar Harbor

#1 of 61 in Trails in Maine
Hiking Trail · Nature / Park
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. Use our Bar Harbor trip planning app to arrange your visit to Ocean Path and other attractions in Bar Harbor.
