The Owls Head light is one of the easiest to access in Maine and will give you a beautiful view of the Midcoast. Tours inside the light are available at various times during the year and of course be sure to bring your camera.

We have frequented this majestic lighthouse and their volunteer staff, and are especially amazed with their beautiful, dutiful upkeep of such purposeful, historical land/sea-mark. We enjoy the walking paths to and around the beach areas adorning this favorite lighthouse.

We could walk right up to the lighthouse. Was after season so we didn't get to see the keeper's house inside but the day was stunning and the lighthouse looked like it had just been painted. A nice easy walk through a small woods then to the open. Just lovely.

Came here last year and could only see about 1/4 mile due to dense fog. Came again this year and were glad we did. The weather was cools and clear. From the top you can see all the way to Camden harbor and beyond. In the other direction you look towards Bar Harbor. This is a must see

The setting and lighthouse are worth visiting. A visit to the top to see the Fresnel lens is awesome. The volunteers are knowledgeable about the Lighthouse and surrounding area, view of Acadia from the top. Definitely worth a stop. The shop next door is a must see.

This isn't the most impressive or the most beautiful of Maine's lighthouses. But it is one of the few in which you can climb to the top, enter the lantern and observe the working fresnel lens and light up close. The volunteer guides from the American Lighthouse Association are friendly. So, if you decide to visit, check ahead of time... More

Lighthouses and Maine are so well linked and here is a small but very accessible lighthouse we toured on National Lighthouse Day! The place is well cared for, and the grounds are accessible to explore and walk out a trail to the waterfront south of Rockland. From the light tower you can see the speck of the Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse.

The Owl's Head Lighthouse is a small but picturesque lighthouse. The access is an easy walk and the view is great.

This lighthouse is only a short walk and then a few stairs. If you go when it is open (we did) it is only a few steps on a ladder to the top and you are about to see a long ways.

This is a very short walk to a small lighthouse that has very nice views. Short steps up to the lighthouse. Lighthouse was pretty and the views are worth the stop. The property is very well maintained.
