While visiting Maine for a long weekend during Maine Lighthouse day. This was my choice to visit and tour. The Rangers and Coast Guard were very friendly and somewhat informative (they missed a few historical details). The Museum has some interesting displays, and the grounds are very nice.

The W.Quoddy Headlight is a small lighthouse with a nice museum. Worth a visit. It sits on the most eastern point in continental U.S. It contains info on the light as well as the surrounding area.

Nice lighthouse and park with a few trails. Just because it is the easternmost point in the continental US, you have to visit here. And there are great views, some nice trails and a little museum.

I loved the fairly flat trails we explored. The ground has a lot of peat moss and is squishy, making it easier on someone like me who has a bad back. The views are stunning. We were able to also go down to the beach for a water-side view of the lighthouse. It was a beautiful way to spend the... More

The hiking was lovely. It's only a few miles, but you overlook the pounding surf, can see out to many of the smaller islands, walk on the rocks at low tide, great opportunities for picture-taking - all in all highly recommend. And it's a great bike ride if you are staying in Lubec or nearby.

We went in a group of 4 and spent around 2 hours here, hiking on one of the trails and then venturing down to the beach. You could see some seals swimming just off the jagged shore line here. Its been great to know that after going here we can know say that we've been the furthest point east in... More

Make certain you go hiking there! Amazing views! Bring a camera! The hiking trails are moderate, so bring very good shoes and perhaps a hiking stick. DO NOT wear flip flops on the hike.

Go and get your picture taken with the marker. It is available 24 hours, though the lighthouse guest area closes at 5. However, I do not recommend taking the coastal trail, which is not well marked, narrow and seems to meander through 5' foliage.

Besides the famous candy-striped light house, this part offers miles of hiking trails that skirt the rugged granite cliffs overlooking the Gulf of Maine, pine forest, beautiful wildflowers and even an arctic bog. If you visit the bog, accessible by means of a wooded trail, you will be able to walk along a boardwalk that has been installed to protect... More
