not your flat hiking plenty of nice lookout points with access stairs to the beach. A good day out to hike from 1 to 5 miles if you so choose.

We so enjoyed the drive and views from the park. The views, ocean breeze and smell were wonderful and soothed my soul and you must see the sunrise there or at the Lighthouse.

The lighthouse is small but impressive. The better sights at this state park are the beaches, though. Beach stones worn smooth by the waves and the rocks grinding each other down. Go at low tide to climb around the ledges exposed by the receding tide. After exploring the beach, hike any of the trails through the costal woods or on... More

This is a must see Park if you are in the Lubec, Maine area. The Park is at the end of South Lubec Road. When driving toward Lubec on Highway 189, look for South Lubec Road on your right. Simply follow this road a few miles to the end. The Lighthouse by the shore is very picturesque. As you approach... More

Pretty lighthouse with great opportunities to hike, picnic, and whale watch along the Maine coast. On a clear day, a perfect spot to look out at Campobello Island, watch the tides rise or fall, and watch the leaves change color in the fall.
