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

My sister and I walked along the bluff, which faced the Atlantic Ocean. The trail goes for 2-3 miles at least, but we did not walk the length. The sun was rising. The park was quiet. Down on the rocky beach we got a good look at the plant life and the rock formations and enjoyed the sea and the... More

Where do I start? My wife and I vacation with our pooch in Maine for one month every summer. Although we usually stick to Portland, Kennebunkport, and Southwest Harbor for the duration of our stay, we decided to add an extra week in Lubec this past August. What a mistake. Lubec is a ghost town filled with trash and abandoned/run-down... More

We had been referred here by a friend and decided to check it out. It was a little bit of a drive, about 2 hours from Bar Harbor, but well worth it. The lighthouse is well maintained and very nice. The surrounding views are incredible! Nice trails that allow you to hike down the shoreline a ways and enjoy the... More

Outstanding and super maintained park. Four miles of trails, some with informative signs about the flora and fauna. Life altering beauty. Very much worth the visit and hike. Picnic tables, parking at trail heads. Very peaceful in October.

This was a classic hike on the Maine coast. Looking out looking at the ocean waves crashing and seeing the fall foliage.

This is a beautiful stretch of rocky coastline just across from Campobello Island. The red and white striped lighthouse is iconic. There is an easy trail through the woods along a breathtakingly beautiful coastline.

Though I grew up in Washington County, it wasn't till many years later when I returned to visit that I finally hiked the coastal trails at Quoddy Head. The trail to the East of the Lighthouse really isn't worth the effort but the trail from the lighthouse over to the state park and then continuing on to Green Point is... More

Our group traveled to Lubec for several reasons but this light house was #1! It sits on the eastern most point of the US and has spectacular views! The volunteers there are enthusiastic and happy to answer all of your questions. We would definitely return.
