The hike itself was alright, but it ended much further away from the lighthouse than I expected. If you just want to walk around and stretch your legs, this is a great little hike.

I love lighthouses so I had to see this one. The park itself has great walking paths and beautiful overviews. The day we were there had lots of picnickers and hikers.

Great view once you get there but very little location parking, maybe 4 picnic tables anywhere. Just go for the exercise and view DON't picnic.
