So many insect eating plants as well as a bunch of other strange and interesting life forms.

Bog/fen nature walk was excellent! IT was definitely worth the walk. Views of coast, forest, ferns, moss are all included.

What a surprise...this is nature at its best. We did the long coastal hike (I believe 4 .miles), and enjoyed a point where we built inukshuks and each made a wish. A moment we will remember forever. The longer hike is fairly wet and muddy though, but that's part of the journey!!

Quick stop to stretch our legs and our senior dogs legs too. The trails are great and not too difficult. The scenery and wildlife were beautiful. I didn't bring my camera on the walk but I regretted it once on the trails.

Take the time to hike at least some of the trails. The cliffs are breathtaking, you don't have to walk far to enjoy them. Also take the time to check out the bog trail, it's very informative and pretty. If you walk the entire coastal trail, know that it's about 2 miles, the trail map is deceiving and we weren't...

What a great surprise this park and trails provided! We watched the tide rise over six feet over a variety of views provided by this well marked trails. Very clean, very scenic and plenty of mosquitoes! Be prepared.

Unbelievable beauty! If you are passing through, you must stop, even if just for a few and it's a couple miles out of your way.

About 6 miles off Maine 189. The road in and out is pretty. We saw several Bald Eagles along the road. Awesome views at low tide with the water going up and down about 15 feet. Lighthouse operates. Visitor center and museum open until 17:00. Nice to get a photo standing on the point farthest east in the US. If... More

I was caught off guard by the beauty of this park. I rate it 5 stars for that, 3 stars for everything else, as there is no camping or running water around. Simple pit toilet, in good condition. What you find is nicely kept grounds around the lighthouse for picnics and some hiking trails of varying difficulties and views. We... More
