“You feel like walking in the middle of the sea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

One of the very unique experience we had the chance to enjoy in Maine.

Once you made you way to the start of the walk, leave the car behind and start the long and uneven walk towards the lighthouse. It is picture perfect, and if you go there at the end of the day, you will experience one of the most fantastic sunset ever.

One word of caution though. The walk is long (4400 ft one way) and uneven (stone walk).

“Enjoyable walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Make sure to wear tennis shoes or good walking shoes, they told us that the rocks can get very slippy if it has rained. The walk is about a mile out there, but well worth it. they have so places to seat and rest once you get there. you can go up into the lighthouse it is just a few steps up.

“Nice Walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

Have your walking shoes on for this bumpy 2 mile walk out and back. Once you get to the lighthouse there are benches to sit on but no restroom or drinking water. The skyline is beautiful to look at but watch your step!

“Scenic Walkway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

We walked out to the lighthouse on a beautiful October morning. The break wall is uneven but easy to navigate if you watch your step. Great views of harbor and a part of Samoset golf course.

“A Long Walk but well worth the trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

What a beautiful place to see the bay and a lighthouse to boot. The walk is a little long, 7/8th of a mile and you have to watch your step, the granite is uneven but once out t0 the lighthouse the views are breathtaking. Be sure to check the hours as you do not want to make the trip out during high tide and the lighthouse is only open during certain hours so check with the museum in town for more information.
Well worth your time!
