The area has trails and picnic areas to enjoy after you have taken the photos of the lighthouse. There is ample parking a short distance down the road.

On our way to Antigonish, we took a scenic drive to the lighthouse. Breathtaking is how I would describe it. A little out of our way but so worth the drive. It is the "Cabot Trail" of the Merigomish area. It was a beautiful, sunny...More
