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.

Unfortunately we could only spend about an hour or so here but really enjoyed the time we did. Wish we could have stayed for low tide but had to leave. A must see in the Lubec area.

We are fit hikers and enjoyed a day on the trails here. Be aware, however, that the trails, except for the sections close to the parking area, are not designed for easy walks. They are steeply up and down, with roots, big rocks, and many long treacherous muddy sections. They are maintained as well as possible, but this is a... More

The trail along the Bold Coast from Quoddy Head State Park is one of the easiest and most rewarding trails downeast. The views of the coast, cliffs, and Grand Manan Island, along the trail are breathtaking. Even if you do only part of the trail it's well worth your time. Make this a must see stop on your visit to... More

...and good hiking available. This is an unusual part of the coast - the tides, the cliffs, even the color of the ocean. The footing is muddy and rocky on the trails at times, so if you choose to hike, wear appropriate footgear.
