This was a nice place to go see with trails, clean restrooms. Worth the time to go visit. We took our dogs there and it was great for them. more »

Located across the bay from Belfast, this is a nice state park. Opens at 9 until dusk. We packed a lunch and enjoyed the view. There is a rocky beach and a few trails to walk around. more »

This is such a beautiful park. There is a huge picnic area with a park for kids. Visitors can climb down to the beach and explore the tide pools. There are also a few short hiking/walking trails. Only downside-stay on the trail because there is a little poison ivy.

A beautiful, quiet walk through the woods at the edge of Belfast Bay.

Beautiful location in a quiet area of the coast. Wheelchair accessible with a quick 1.2 mile loop in the park. This loop is very easy walk, I did it in flip-flops. The views are stunning on the loop, well worth the effort. The park worker was very friendly and helpful giving us all the information needed.
