This is a lovely lighthouse in a scenic area. Definitely worth a stop if you are in the area. There is a large parking area at the bottom of the hill with bathrooms. You need to walk up about a half mile I am guessing,...More

The walk up is not for the mobility impaired, but if you can make it the view is worth the walk down and back.
