An easy ramble along the water with great views. Good for children. But be sure to time your visit to avoid high tide or you will have to wade to reach the island. Not to be missed on Deer Isle if you enjoy outdoor activities.
The Barred Island preserve is one of the best walking trails and unique walks around . If is good for all except for really young and quite old. Excellent views native plants,trees,mosses and more. Don't try to bike or take a stroller. Enjoy !!!

What a beautiful place. I truly enjoyed the hike through the magical forest out to the sand bar. If you time the tide correctly, there are many lovely shells and seaside to be observed on the sand bar. Listening to the many bird calls here made me want to take up residence here. Visit - you will really enjoy it,... 更多

The island is accessible for about 3 1/2 hours after low tide. After that the little beach that leads you to the island is covered in water. The island itself is... 更多
Today's walk was a highlight of our trip. Beautiful 1.5 mile hike through the trees. Mostly flat with tree roots. Amazing view from the lookout. But the view of the water from the sand bar and rocks at the end is spectacular. Go when tide is low so can walk to the island.
