I've been to West Quoddy in all four seasons and all times of the day. The view, the colors - every day is bathed in the light of a splendid visual feast.

Cool site, but really just another lighthouse at the end of the USA going east. It's the trails which make this a must do if you're "down east." Just remember this is a seacoast location and weather is highly variable relative to even a couple miles inland.

You have not fully experienced the beauty of nature and Maine's bold cost until you visit Quoddy Head State Park. When in Lubec for a week I visit the park every day. In my opinion it is the greatest natural place in America. Beautiful peaceful tranquility!!

I have been going here since I was a child, a visit to Lubec isn't complete with out a stop to the lighthouse. Great hiking trails are found through out the park. It is a great picnic spot.

We took the trail from the lighthouse (which is under renovation) and open for visitors one day in July and one in September. The trail is well marked and easy to follow. The bog sports all of the low level vegetation that can survive on water from the fog. The trail takes you through the pines and along the shore... More

Wonderful trails. While the lighthouse is under construction it is a must-see. The bog walk is excellent and the trail to get there is breath taking. Standing on that trail to the bog is my absolute favorite spot in Maine.

We hiked the trails both last year and this year. The views are amazing. Trails are pretty easy. Lots of benches to sit and admire the views. Bring water and lunch or snakes as you won't want to stop as every bend has another stunning view.

Fantastic state park. Anyone who loves lighthouses and hiking has to put this on their bucket list. The Coastal Trail opens up to many fantastic vistas, but I think the trail is longer than the 2 miles their map says - it took us a LONG time to finish. We were exhausted and a little disappointed to find it ended... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Quoddy Head State Park. There is ample parking. After paying the out of state fee we started out on the inland trail. The trail is well set out and easy to walk. It takes you through pine forests with the wonderful scent of balsam. Having just rained heavily the day before there several briskly... More
