Bar Island Trail

Walking in Bar Harbor

The 157-acre island that lies directly offshore, north of Bar Harbor, can be reached on foot at low tide. For two hours either side of low tide, a gravel bar is exposed, connecting the town to Bar Island. A trail continues to the summit of the island, allowing great views. It's just under 2 miles, out and back.

Make sure to investigate tide times before setting out, so you don't get stuck on the island!
