Roque Bluffs State Park – Roque Bluffs, ME

Roque Bluffs State Park in Roque Bluffs, Maine offers over 6 miles of dog friendly hiking through diverse terrain.  Located on Schoppee Point, Roque Bluffs State Park consists of 274 acres with trails that loop their way through old apple orchards, meadows, and dense forest along rocky shores with breathtaking views of Great Cove and Pond Cove.  The three main trails - Houghton’s Hill Trail, Mihill Trail, and Pond Cove Trail, are connected by a network of smaller trails giving hikers a variety of options for easy to moderate hiking, making it a great place to explore over and over again with your dog.

Dogs must be kept on a four foot leash.  Please note dogs are not allowed on the ocean beach on Englishman Bay, but can enjoy Simpson Pond as long as they are leashed.  In addition to the well marked trails, there are picnic areas along the trail at scenic overlooks, playground facilities, and a large parking lot.  Tranquil compared to other Maine State Parks, Roque Bluffs is open 9:00 AM to sunset from May 15 through October 30, and during the off-season visitors may continue to enjoy the trails by parking outside the gated parking lot.  Admission is by honor system and is $4.00 for Adult Maine Residents, $6.00 for Nonresidents, $2.00 for Seniors, and $1.00 for Children age 5-11.  Please note Maine Residents over 65 have free admission.
