Bar Island Trail (Acadia National Park)

I hiked the Bar Island Trail today in Acadia National Park.   I have wanted to hike the trail for awhile but haven't been able to time it when Bar Harbor isn't crowded and when the tides are right.

The 1.9 mile Bar Island Trail crosses a sandbar to reach the island.  Dry passage to the island is possible 90 minutes before to 90 minutes after low tide.  After crossing the sandbar the trail gradually climbs to a summit overlooking downtown Bar Harbor.  

This is a beautiful trail but also very popular so expect to see many people on the hike.
