Just off the Goosecove Rd in Deer Isle is a beautiful 1 mile hike out to Barred Island.  If you intend on visiting the island you'll need to plan on getting there near low tide.  The island is only accessible a few hours on either side of low tide.   You can travel around the island on foot and enjoy the sun on the rock ledges and get a great view of the Camden Hills across the water. The sand beach there is an excellent place for a picnic or even a swim . Very peaceful way to enjoy the beauty of the coast of Maine. Check out our hiking package for more great opportunities.
