“A run that hits the main highlights at Quoddy Head, the eastern-most point in the continental U.S.”— Liz
The Coastal Trail winds right along the rocky and often cliffed-out coast. As such, you'll have amazing views. Follow the trail all the way to Gulliver's Hole (a narrow chasm in the cliff) and High Ledge (150-foot tall bluff). From here, continue to follow the Coastal Trail until you reach Green Point. Take the Green Point Trail to a rock outcrop where you can navigate down to the beach (just be careful around high tide).
After enjoying the beach, head back via the Inland Trail. This will let you take a swing along the Bog Trail. This is a nice option to learn about some of the ecology of the area. There are interpretive signs along the length of the boardwalk and nice views of the bog at the end. Turn back and continue following the Inland Trail until you end up back at the parking area.
