Spectacular place.

One of the highlights of our trip to downeast Maine. The coastal trail is beautiful. The hike is not that hard. And the best views are in first half of it.

Hiking trails from cliff to seashore, see whales, eagles, seals. Good place to be early on January 1, where you can be the first to see the sun come up on a New Year; easternmost spor in the USA

Sometimes experiences are the product of timing and no doubt my feelings about this place are based on unusual timing. Girl friend contracts mystery traveler's illness and hunkers down in car while I hit an hours worth of trail running in the park while its drizzling. Every turn and embankment of well groomed trail delivered an unparalleled view. On one... More

Great hiking right on the cliffs above the water. They were adding a new trail while we were there, but they already have several miles of ocean view trails.

There are some nice and easy trails to see the coast and gravel beach and bogs. The gravel beach was interesting in terms of the roundness of the rocks there and that most of them area bluish in color. The bedrock out by the water is covered by slimy seaweed, so you cannot really climb out on them to get... More

A pretty state park with short hiking trails and some lovely cliff-side views. Worth the stop if you are in the area.

We visited three times before we really had seen the lighthouse: once in the daytime with clear weather, once in the fog when we saw very little and once in the evening as the fog moved in and it grew dark when we saw even less.

Large number of hiking trails along the coastline . there is also an Arctic bog with a boardwalk and a self guiding information placards. It also is an easy walk over to West Quoddy light. The interesting part is that fog can come in any time and really creates an interesting atmosphere.

We were just at Quoddy Head State Park and it could not have been a better day. We met up with family and had a picnic in the park and sat and visited and just looked at the awsome views of the water. We spent so much time at Quoddy Light and climbed the lighthouse that the day went by... More
