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

The coastal hiking trail here provides views as beautiful as Acadia, but also solitude and silence during our late June visit, when the parking lot and trails were nearly empty. Trail was very muddy in places; wear your boots.

Pros: Great mix of trails, Excellent ocean views, Lighthouse Cons: If you've ever wanted to say you've been to the most eastern part of the US you've come to the right place. This is a nice park with lots to see and do. There is a light house on site, ample free parking, and various hiking trails ranging from wooded... More

We spent several hours in Quoddy State Park after checking into our B & B in Lubec. We paid $1 each, the senior citizen out-of-state rate. It is a real bargain if you like some seaside hikes with beautiful views and enjoy learning about the history of lighthouses, specifically Quoddy. There is a nice little museum. Although you cannot enter... More

A very remote park, Quoddy Head offers great (and intense) hiking for those who love the outdoors. Spectacular wildlife and just an overall wonderful adventurous retreat. I am very glad I had the opportunity to experience it and would recommend it to anyone staying in Lubec or Machias, ME.

Great place with a lot of history behind it. The hiking trails are a lot of fun and provide some great views for pictures. I've been there many times and never get tired of it.

My best friend and I decided to embark upon a trip we have talked about for years: driving to Maine (from New Mexico) without a map - specifically to the US' easternmost point, Quoddy Head State Park. Our journey was absolutely incredible! We noticed when we got into our car after the first pit stop for gas / coffee in... More

We hiked the coast trail and the inner trails. Great views. Trails could be tough for kids and those with physical limitations.

The trails are very easy to walk aside from maybe some muddy areas but the views they afford the person are well worth it! Some of the viewpoints are literally breathtaking...if you look down! Really really beautiful place to visit.
