The only access to the beach at Barred Harbor is via seaside Goat Trail or the island-spanning Median Ridge Trail. It’s a couple miles of hiking either way, which keeps the crowds away. The horseshoe-shaped cove often harbors seabirds, and beachcombers will find the occasional lobster trap and other picturesque fishing detritus scattered among the rocks.
