The lighthouse is the eastern-most point in the U.S. and the closest to Africa (in case you ever wanted to go there!). You can't go in the lighthouse itself but you can go through the visitor center which was the keepers residence at one time.

Well maintained hiking trails, picnic tables and stairs to the rocky shore. Lots of benches and look out points along the trails to relax and enjoy the views. Caution should be taken with children, lots of cliffs, incredible surf and some of the scariest and...More

A scenic hike along a rugged coastline. The first part of the trail is a pleasant walk for hikers of all abilities. The trail is wide and relatively flat and benches are interspersed along the way for resting. Keep an eye out for whales and...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

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?

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