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

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.
