The Ship Harbor Trail at Acadia National Park, near Bar Harbor, Maine is an easy 1.3 mile loop hike along the coast of Acadia and through a coniferous forest in the park. The trail has various points where you can exit to head down to the ocean, where you can fish (with a state license), or soak up the views of Acadia's coastline. The water runs a deep blue mixed with greens and often looks like tropical waters, but the water temperature along the coast is quite frigid.

This is a great trail for a day hike and is located within a few miles of Acadia campgrounds; however, this section of Acadia is a bit further away from Bar Harbor and other attractions at Acadia like the Beehive and Cadillac Mountain.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
