The Quoddy Head light sits on the easternmost point of the United States. The hike begins along the south shore of Quoddy Head, a small, round peninsula that is nearly an island. The Shore Trail, at the beginning of the Coastal Trail, passes atop some of the highest cliffs on the coast of Maine. The farther west you hike, the lower the cliffs, offering access to the rocky shore. Before turning inland the hike passes a side trail that leads to the sandy beach along the Carrying Place. The return hike on the Thompson Trail passes a raised peat bog that has a boardwalk through it.
