We stopped at Quoddy Head State Park on our way to the lighthouse. It is a lovely little park with hiking trails and beautiful ocean views. The restrooms were clean.

Attractive and well kept lighthouse and keepers house. While the site is state property, the visitors center is a nonprofit organization, run by volunteers. The couple that were on duty were very knowledgeable about all the surrounding areas, as well as the lighthouse itself. A fun stop.

At a bare minimum, go do the Bog Trail hike, very accessible and a unique habitat like no other. The boardwalk is very well placed with informative signage. We went on and did the whole loop walk and wished we'd brought that second bottle of water! A very good hike but wear shoes that can get a little damp and... More

If you love the rocky coast of Maine, crazy tides and lovely lighthouses, this is for you! We were lucky to have clear sunny weather, but there is a coastal breeze so be prepared. We didn't hike much but those who do will love it.

Of course the famous red and white striped lighthouse is a must see, but the various seaside nature trails are great too. You can spend just a few minutes or an afternoon here depending on how much you want to hike and sight see. The views into the bay are just stunning on a clear day. Bring a jacket as... More

Need to go back and do all the trails. Ample parking, closes at sunset. Go to the beach, check out the views, watch for wildlife on the trails. Moose, porcupine, red squirrels and more. Great trails. Not for sneakers, bring your mucks or hiking boots, can be wet and muddy.

Quaddy light is a nice place to visit. The view is wonderful. There is a path along the cliffs with a lot of benches to take in the scenery. The path is such that I recommend hiking boots or the very least a good pair of sneakers. This is a good family hike. When visiting Quaddy Lighthouse keep your dog... More

Quoddy Head State Park is a gem in this far corner of Lubec, Maine. I went there on a Sunny weekday afternoon in June and it wasn't too difficult to find--you do need to keep an eye for the sign from the main road so you don't miss the side road leading to the Park. The red-n-white striped lighthouse just... More
