This strategically sited park and lighthouse, the most eastern light in the continental United States, is my new favorite spot to visit in Maine. Known for classic vistas with sea spray and pine tree lined cliffs and trails that invite you to commune with nature...More

After looking at the lighthouse we decided to take the trail along the cliffs over the water. This is a very special trail with the dramatic rocky coast on one side and beautiful woods on the other. It was foggy the day we took it,...More

Take a couple of hours and enjoy the trails and the beautiful views! Listen to the waves crashing onto the rocks! Worth some time!

If your in the area you must stop at the Quoddy Head State Park. The lighthouse is the prime attraction that is a must see. Great place to visit with smoke walking trails.

Trail runs along ocean with stunning cliffs and views. Iconic West Quoddy Lighthouse anchors the park. Make sure to visit the bog with its unusual plants.

Nice park, free entry, adjacent to lighthouse. Picnic area, and many trails to choose from--into the woods, to a large bog, or along the shore line. Maybe you'll see a whale?

My wife and I visited here on 9/9/17. We don't have this type of shore line in Texas so hiking the coast trail was just plain beautiful. Two trails lead to Gulliver's Hole - one right along the coast line and the other one through...More

The coastal views are spectacular and you will see lots of birds and seals. I recommend hiking at least part of the Coastal Trail and visiting the bog. Wear appropriate footwear.

I stayed at West Quoddy Station (vacation rentals); I highly recommend it. It's the closest to the park.
