Went because it was one of the few "normal" looking lighthouses on our path, not just a squat little square building. The light is in pretty rough shape and there is nothing else to really see. No trails. No Old Fort "bones". Some monitoring equipment...More

we drove the 20 minutes ride from Liverpool to this lighthouse. There are a couple of picnic benches and the site is well maintained. If you drive the lighthouse road make this D-tour.

This place is amazing you can see so much ocean, bring your binoculars and spend some time looking out at the water. The fog horn is loud and will give you a fair shock. Lots of rocks to go looking for crab.

Quiet (despite the fog horn), well-maintained, soul of Queens County. Most trips lead you down a road that no one else is visiting. It's peaceful and serene. Watch the waves from the concrete wall beside the lighthouse. Sunset here is just a bit magical.

You can't go wrong with a lighthouse! If you're on the lighthouse route, why not see every one? This is a fun place. Very foggy when I was there, so that made it even more real. Do go. Worth the effort.

Most people that visit Liverpool don't know about this additional lighthouse. Much more isolated which I enjoyed. Visit the little harbor on the way.
