Because of the steep ups and downs, proper footwear is must. You walk on along cliffs with 30 to 100 ft drops so... More

If you love rocky cliffs, tall conifers, Atlantic Ocean, and a winding path to view all this beauty—then this is the place to visit. You'll loose track of time as you gaze all around taking in the sights. A rugged welcoming coastline that was once joined with another continent.

It was a beautiful day for a hike with gorgeous views around every bend. Some of the best rocky cliff scenery we've scene on our trip up the Maine coast without all the crowds.

Fantastic hiking trails with breath taking views. Saw a few whales and seals during our hike. The lighthouse is a great place to just stop and unwind.

The best state parks in the country are located in Maine, with almost full access to all parts of the parks.

We arrived too early to go inside the lighthouse. We took a lovely walk along the coast in the state park. I think it was one of the prettiest places I have ever been.
