Free Sunday and Monday access to the lighthouse. Even if you didn’t visit on those days, it’s still worth the walk down to the light house as the view is breathtaking on a clear day in San Francisco.

The lighthouse is only open on Sundays and Mondays from 12:30p-3:30p. So, we arrived at 12:30p and there were a lot of people arriving at the same time. In hindsight, it would have been better to arrive at 1:30 or 2 instead. There was a line of people to cross the small foot bridge to the tiny lighthouse (a ranger let only 49 people at the lighthouse at one time). The bridge does sway a little bit when the wind kicks up, so be prepared. The lighthouse itself is very small and you can only access the two small rooms under the main light. Great views and picture ops of the Golden Gate Bridge.

The walk and view is amazing. Free walk with priceless views. Must see if you visit San Fran. There is a little hike to the light house itself but I'm sure you will take your time.

If you go on a Sunday or Monday, you can get out to the lighthouse. This time, we had such a clear day, we could see the Farallon Islands. It's a super nice walk, but there is a steep incline. You can use your cell phone for interesting audio recorded facts. We took family after having brunch at Cavallo.

Parking on a good weather day proved to be quite difficult. Why? Because if the weather is cloudy and misty the tunnel to get to the lighthouse is closed. Be warned so many people know this and fill up the car parks very early. Its quite a walk to it and have to turn back! Was it all worth it? A great big YES and we found the volunteers in the lighthouse very informative and much appreciated even hearing them at least twice whilst we all were there. Having been once we might stuggle to find time to visit again.
