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.

On a very wet July day,I visited this lovely park and walked on its relatively easy trails appreciating its lovely views of the forceful bay waters and the pretty rock formations.Even though,there was plenty of fog,I still enjoyed it.I also visited the small,but interesting lighthouse museum.The short drive from the town of Lubec to this site is also quite scenic.

I've been to West Quoddy in all four seasons and all times of the day. The view, the colors - every day is bathed in the light of a splendid visual feast.

Cool site, but really just another lighthouse at the end of the USA going east. It's the trails which make this a must do if you're "down east." Just remember this is a seacoast location and weather is highly variable relative to even a couple miles inland.

You have not fully experienced the beauty of nature and Maine's bold cost until you visit Quoddy Head State Park. When in Lubec for a week I visit the park every day. In my opinion it is the greatest natural place in America. Beautiful peaceful tranquility!!

I have been going here since I was a child, a visit to Lubec isn't complete with out a stop to the lighthouse. Great hiking trails are found through out the park. It is a great picnic spot.
