Ship Harbor Trail, Acadia National Park

Date: October 2, 2010
Distance: 1.3 mi (2.1 km) round trip

Ship Harbor

The Ship Harbor Trail in Acadia National Park is an easy, flat trail on the southwest side of Mount Desert Island.  This trail is away from most of the more visited areas of the park, so the trial probably will not be crowded and may be empty.

Ship Harbor

The trail is a narrow loop, one side of which follows the shore of Ship Harbor before reaching the rocky coast.  The trial then turns around and heads back to the trailhead while paralleling the other half of the loop.

Bass Harbor Lighthouse

The Ship Harbor trailhead is along route 102A between the Wonderland Trail and turn for the Bass Harbor Lighthouse.  This lighthouse is set in a beautiful location along the coast where a very short trial leads to great views of it.  The Seawall Campground is east of the trailhead.
