Great loop. It can be a bit wet after a rain and the coastal trail requires some good knees the farther you get to Carrying place cove. Make sure to take some time and sit on the rock looking out at the ocean and islands.

A beautiful lighthouse on the easternmost point in the United States. We were fortunate to visit on a sunny and clear summer day, with fantastic views of the Canadian islands of Campobello and Grand Manan. The state park has five miles of trails with diverse scenery (shoreline, woods and bogs). If you are running somewhat short on time after exploring the lighthouse area, be sure to at least take the path that begins beyond the flagpole. A quick walk to some stairs leads down to a wonderful rocky beach!

Absolutely incredible views! One of my favorite hikes to date. Pick a beautiful day and hopefully you will get the chance to see Campobello without the fog that typically rolls in between the mainland and the island. Lush moss growth surrounds you in this coastal dreamlike trail with several waterfalls and a mini "thunder hole" much like Acadia's. This gem can only be found if you hit it at the correct incoming tide.

Didn't get to spend as much time here as we would have liked. The walk along the water was spectacular. Will be planning a return trip sometime so we can hike more than the first section of trails.

Great trail, but the fog kept us away from the views.

I always loved this trail! Having lived there for a bit, it brings back the good old days when my brother and I used to see Moose and bob cats there. Really a beautiful trail with much to see.

The sunrise was beautiful here. The trail was muddy in spots (I went in the fall) but a pretty easy hike and well worth getting my shoes dirty for this one.
