We went on a Saturday morning and had no problems parking. The views were just beautiful and it allowed my younger kids an opportunity to hike without being to long. An extra bonus was the sound of the fog horn in the background!

If you have the time, make the trip up to the lighthouse and down to the little beach. Bring bug spray at dusk.

This is a small lighthouse tucked in a wooded park. It is a nice walk to the lighthouse, with beautiful views along the way. There are also trails you can take to the shoreline. We stopped here on the way back from the Transportation Museum.

We walked the trails around the light house and along the cliffs for a few hours. A great view across the bay. Some hikers we met said they saw minke whales earlier.

Nice lighthouse. It is a good little walk to get to but breathtaking views from spot. Excellent pictures worth the time to get there.

This is a wonderful little light to visit, and a beautiful area. The view from the top is really nice, and it's not difficult to reach. There are some stairs to navigate, but it wasn't strenuous.

While the Lighthouse itself was not open, the park is beautiful and the views from the outside of the lighthouse are spectacular. We visited on a day road bike outing from Rockland (Sidecountry Sports on Main Street). Well worth the trip. We have also seen the lighthouse from the water and it is just as beautiful.

A short walk above the bay brings you to the smallest light house in Maine where you can climb a few steps then a short ladder to be in a small room with the light which us lit 24/7. Lovely location.

We visited here when we were on vacation. It is an easy drive from Rockland and worth it. When visiting, you should also check out the Owls Head General Store and have one of their hamburgers.
