Quoddy Head State Park Professional Review and Guide

"Enjoy rugged oceanfront cliffs, maritime forests, and a unique peatland on a hike through the easternmost point of land in the US.

Quoddy Head State Park occupies 541 magnificent acres on West Quoddy Head, the easternmost point of land in the continental United States. The park was established by the state in 1962 on lands acquired from private landowners. It features more than 5 miles of pleasant hiking on six trails. This route wends along four trails on the dramatic coastline, through maritime forests, and into a unique bog on its loop route. The name Quoddy is the Passamaquoddy term meaning “fertile and beautiful.”

The park is perhaps best known for its iconic red-and-white striped lighthouse standing tall on the shore of the Bay of Fundy overlooking Canada."
