For two hours on either side of low tide, find respite from the Bar Harbor crowds with a restorative trek across an ephemeral gravel land bridge (the town’s namesake) to lupine-strewn Bar Island. A park-maintained trail leads up a 120-foot hill to views of the village and MDI’s peaks. To avoid wet shoes (or worse), check the tides at the harbormaster’s office before heading out.
