Situated just outside Bar Harbor, this easy trail offers both important history—it’s the former site of park pioneer George B. Dorr’s estate—and sweeping ocean views—its point is right on Frenchman Bay. The trail features some remnants of Dorr’s family home, older growth trees, Dorr Point, and sights along the bay. Take a recently developed ranger-led “Missing Mansion” program in season to learn more about the history.
