We loved looking at it from afar.

We did not walk out there, but took other hikes instead. Had a great tailgate picnic in the parking lot!

This area is obviously on the coast and is stunning. We were there in October 2014 and had glorious weather which obviously benefited us. A great place to visit with free parking too

We saw this from two vantage points, but since we were on a tour, we did not have a chance to go into the lighthouse - I'm not sure that it was open since the season was over. It was beautiful and well worth seeing.

We biked in, walked to the trail to the back of the lighthouse, and then out to the beach through dunes, around the point and back. The two beach sides were radically different. It was a beautiful walk. The sand made it a little bit demanding.

Beautiful spot @ the very tip of the island. The beach path leading to the building was clean and serene.

We rented bikes and rode up the island to the North Lighthouse. You can't actually ride all the way to the lighthouse. There is quite a distance to be walked. There are beautiful dunes all around the lighthouse. Usually it is open, but when we were there it was not.

It's a beautiful lighthouse on a beautiful spot. A fun excursion not far from everything else on Block.

I liked walking to this lighthouse and always like being near the water. I took many pictures and enjoyed my time spent here.

This is a beautiful old lighthouse! Gorgeous walk along the beach. Make sure to look to the south side of the lighthouse and see the memorial bench (made me tear up!) Great bike ride out to see it!

It's about a mile walk on the beach out to the lighthouse, and not an easy one at that. But it's totally worth it. The lighthouse was open recently and for a small donation (I think $3) you could walk around downstairs and see pictures and learn a bit more. The woman there gave a brief overview and let us...
