“Just Wonderful!”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

We stopped here our last trip to Maine to do some hiking, and see the lighthouse, it was absolutely beautiful. The hiking trails were great, with some beautiful look off points. Some how my boyfriend and I seems to have entered the trails backwards because every single other person was coming from the other direction, however we went down some pretty steep hills so it was nice we didn't have to climb them instead. We did have a dog with us, and he loved the trails!! For the most part the trails are well marked and a great walk!! The scenery is beautiful, the lighthouse was nice and all around this place is definitely worth a stop! There is also a picnic area too which is very nice.

“My new favorite spot in Maine!”
Reviewed 4 September 2013 via mobile

Quoddy Head State Park has some of the most beautiful scenery in the whole State of Maine! My husband and I love hiking and finding beautiful walking trails....this has to be by far our favorite!! The sights and sounds are breathtaking!! And the trails are just challenging enough to be an adventure. There is also a wonderful picnic area with grills for a great lunch spot!

“Great Hiking”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

We really enjoy hiking in this park. There are trails at the top of the spectacular cliffs leading down to the water as well as sidetrips into places like a lovely bod with all sorts of interesting plants. The East Quoddy Lighthouse is in the park and is an interesting stop as well.

“Nice lighthouse”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

A good stop if you are in Lubec, and visitors can say that they have been to the easternmost spot in the continental U.S. Bring your jackets if you want to hike -- it feels about 10 degrees cooler there than in the middle of Lubec, which is only a few miles away.
