Bar Island is a heavily trafficked trail that is located in the harbor right by Bar Harbor. Bar Island is accessible for 3 hours during low tide. It's a nice hike across a sand bar until you get on the island then you hike another mile to the highest point on Bar Island.
Safety Note: Be cautious and aware of the tides, as the bar is otherwise covered by the ocean. If you walk over to the island and lose track of time, it is 9 hours until the bar emerges again to safely walk across.
Parking in the town of Bar Harbor.
