This is my favorite trail of all on the island. You go through mossy woods, coastal rocky beaches, meadows with abandoned farm buildings and orchards....peaceful and quiet and often you're the only ones on the trail.

I hiked the trail along the rocky shore, and could not believe how many ocean vistas there were. Very doable, just watch out for tree roots. Couple of slight inclines on the way back through the woods, but my bad knee was still okay. Bring water!

The views are amazing on this hike. We've hiked all the trails on the island and this is by far the most scenic. A close second would be Barred Island. It's a little hard to find but well worth the trouble.

We go here at least once a year with our kids. The beauty of this hike is the option to take a short cut, or the full trail. It is well maintained and is quite breathtaking in some areas. One of our favorite trails on the island.

We have hike this preserve a number of times. It has great shore trails where you can watch eagles, osprey, other birds. And you can add to that the two farmsteads inshore where the open areas give you a different sort of experience. Yesterday one was filled with yellow and brownish butterflies (sprites?) and the other with dragonflies. Only easy... More

Wonderful hike/walk along the beautiful Maine coast. Do it every summer. All the preserves are beautiful, but this is very special.

You would be nuts to visit Deer Isle without doing this gorgeous, easy waterfront walk. Do Barred Island walk too. Enjoy!

If you like to hike in mossy woods, and love the rocky shore and views of islands dotting the distance, you get both here. If you don't like tree roots across the trail, then don't come, but you'll be missing an incredible experience. Dogs are welcome on leashes.
