Definitely worth your while if you are looking to hike by the water. It was tiring but worth it. I saw beautiful sights and felt accomplished when I finished!

Walked the Coast Guard Trail to Quoddy Narrows. Loved the view. The present lighthouse has been there since 1858.

My husband and I read that the views at this park were like visiting Acadia without the crowds. My husband had walked one of the trails that showed "straight-down breath-taking views" to the shore so we took another hike in the opposite direction on a...More

Though not a huge park in terms of size, Quoddy Head State Park is a huge find in terms of gorgeous views and Bay of Fundy rocks. Enjoy a picnic from one of several idyllic spots...overlooking Campobello Island and the Bay of Fundy or nestled...More

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