My best friend and I decided to embark upon a trip we have talked about for years: driving to Maine (from New Mexico) without a map - specifically to the US' easternmost point, Quoddy Head State Park. Our journey was absolutely incredible! We noticed when we got into our car after the first pit stop for gas / coffee in Maine that everyone working there seemed to be very relaxed, like they just got blasted with serenity or something. The same held true for all the people we met in Maine. Upon entering Maine, fortunately, we happened to see out of the corner of our eye that Quoddy Head State Park was exit 182A. Oddly, once there, there were no signs to direct us to Quoddy, and ended up being about another 2 hours from that exit anyway (maybe we read the exit wrong, not sure?). We arrived at the last sprig of daylight. The park / lighthouse was all closed up, but at least we got to take pictures of the incredible views out to the atlantic and listen to the horns going out to sea, as well as sit on the legendary park bench. We also shot a firework off into the ocean, putting some ashes of our other best friend that passed last year this time. Quoddy is a must for anyone. A great excuse to take a trip!!! :)

We hiked the coast trail and the inner trails. Great views. Trails could be tough for kids and those with physical limitations.

The trails are very easy to walk aside from maybe some muddy areas but the views they afford the person are well worth it! Some of the viewpoints are literally breathtaking...if you look down! Really really beautiful place to visit.

If you only have on chance to go here,check the tides to insure that you can "walk" on the sea floor with the sea weed. We were able to got here two times. Once in the rain and wind at low tide and once near high tide. At low tide, you are able to walk to the lighthouse. We did not go all the way due the rain and wind but it was great to see the furry of the storm on the area. So do not let weather stop your going. On your second trip it was a very clear day and we say Eagles and wales from the outlooks near by. Well worth the ride. I would recommend.

This state park is one of Maine's treasures that not enough folks visit. Here you can enjoy hiking a coastal trail, an inland trail, and a bog trail. The latter has informational signs that are very well done - with the help of these, now I can identify pitcher plants. The coastal trail has numerous overlooks for enjoying the coastal setting and taking photos, and well sited benches for relaxing. You'll be glad you spent the time to get here - and to the adjacent West Quoddy Light House.
