Adventurous tourists often leave the path to explore tidal pools on the rocky shoreline. The path remains open from dawn till dusk. As it is a public path right next to the private residences, one should be careful as to not to trespass. If bringing pets, they must be leashed and cleaned up after.

However, there are some points to remember when you walk the great Bar Harbor Shore Path. There are quite a few areas on the rocky beach where the low tide can get admittance. At some other points, the wall is nearly on the same level with the trail, and at times, it may be high above the rocky ledges. The trail often gets quite narrow and thus may have limited accessibility. But the Bar Harbor Shore Path is just perfect for two to walk hand in hand!
