A two mile hike through thick forests with a trail full of roots brings you to the water of Western Bay in Indian Point near Bar Harbor, Maine. It’s on the west side of Bar Harbor on Indian Point Rd. take care when hiking because the roots of the forest floor are plentiful, but when you pop out onto the paved (private) road, then cross over to the shore, it is worth it. A trail runs along the water above the rocky shore. We sat for several hours enjoying the late afternoon (5-7 pm) and watching the seals with our binoculars, although you could see them with the naked eye. Don’t bring your pets bc they aren’t allowed in the preserve. Before leaving the parking area, make sure to look at the 4 trees at the entrance. A marker on one of the trees explains that they were planted the same day Abe Lincoln was assassinated. There are no restroom or water facilities.

Ignore any negative reviews. This is a beautiful slice of the maine woods and shoreline. A quiet place to meditate and take in the surroundings. It’s not zoo so don’t go expecting to see seals!!!!!

This is a great, quiet and peaceful place a short distance from the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor. The trail descends slightly more than a mile from the parking area to the ocean. The trail passes through a gorgeous spruce, fir and cedar forest, reaching an overgrown apple orchard just before the ocean. Red squirrels and blue jays scolded us as we walked, and we were greeted by a flock of crows calling to one another as they flew above us.

The trail is well marked with paint blazes and metal arrows. The trail is a bit rugged with tree roots and rocks, so you probably want to wear hiking boots or sneakers with a decent tread. There are wooden plank walkways across all the areas that would normally wet. We are in the middle of an extended drought, so there really weren't any wet areas when we walked. Higgins Hill Road, a private asphalt paved road provides an alternative way of walking down to the ocean for those who aren't up to walking down the trail. Higgins Hill Road is privately owned. You can walk down it, but you should respect the privacy of the landowners who live on the road and not drive on it.

A small barn with some informational signs is located at the edge of the parking lot. There is also a donation box. The sign asks for a $2 donation to support the upkeep of this preserve, which is run by the Nature Conservancy. To me $2 is a small price to pay to walk through this gorgeous area. If you don't have cash or don't feel comfortable leaving cash in the drop box, I'm sure you could also make a donation on the web site for the Nature Conservancy's Maine Chapter.

The ocean here is a quiet, secluded stretch of the Mount Desert Narrows shoreline. There is a cobblestone beach with nice views across Mount Desert Narrows to the northwest, west, and southwest. We didn't see any seals, but I'm sure that's luck of the draw. it was still absolutely worth the walk to see this beautiful place.

Beautiful dense green hike, one of my favorites out here since the vegetation was thick and mossy. Not much going on at the coastline when we got there, some scrambling and tide-pooling. A service road is available for a short walk back instead of the longer trail.

This was a flop for us. I feel that I’m being generous to give it a 3. The walk thru the woods is quite pretty with beautiful moss carpeted areas. However it’s a very long walk to the seals. And for us the seals were still very far away from the end of the trail and property line. Like so far you could barely see them (we didn’t have binoculars). We stayed about 5 minutes then started the walk back. So just be aware that if you see any they will be very far away. Just little black somethings in the water. We regretted spending time here. If you’ve done every single thing you want on MDI and have time to spare, maybe come here. But I’d keep this very low on my list of things to do.

We love the quiet, secluded walk to Indian Point and our lab enjoyed himself too. The view of the bay at the end of the walk is well worth the time.

Little tough to find, we drove by it two times before we figured it out. It is less than two miles from Route 102 on the right hand side. Oak Hill road comes in from the left, then just shortly beyond, look for the white sign for the entrance to the right. Free parking, no entrance fee and choice of walking the paved small road or the very interesting Big Woods Trail that we opted for. Lots of tree roots to climb over and some rocks..but not bad. Just enough to make it interesting. Really beautiful old growth tree forest. Came out at the end to a beautiful section of shoreline on the bay. Then took the road back due for a different view. No picnics allowed, no pets, and no restrooms.

Stumbled on this trail with my 15 year old daughter. Hike was fairly easy- arrived to rocky beach. Could hear the seals barking and saw heads bobbing in the water. Soon noticed they were together- multiple seals- sunning on distant rocks. Could clearly hear them barking. Just bring binoculars because we couldn't get very close- but what a treat!

Ran into a seal fanatic who regularly comes here to watch the seals and came at his direction He noted that you should come about 2-3 hours before low tide so you can see the seals nursing. The seals will finish weaning the pups in the next week or so, but for a late May, early June activity, this is nice. We walked there through the wooded path, but came back up the asphalt road. The road was much more direct and easier. We ran into the people in the one house on the road and they didn't seem to mind us walking there. The island where the seals sun is fairly far off shore so you will need a scope or some good binoculars. We also saw an eagle soaring along the shore line.

nice walk through woods or dirt road. No dogs allowed. You can't bring folding chairs and big picnic basket as that is not allowed. You can bring binoculars and there is a nice view, birds, flowers, and the bay view may include seals if you are in there in the april or may. Bring bug spray or wear protective clothing. Quiet prevails. Not a tourist attraction but nice place for nature lovers. Be aware it is meant for quiet reflection of nature. Good shoes recommended for forest trail.
