All reviews parking lot on the rocks light house coast guard head lighthouse paved path climb down steep stairs worth the trip beautiful view parking area bar harbor quick stop wooden steps beautiful spot short trail vantage point
When we arrived at the turnoff to the lighthouse from Route 102A we were greeted by a Maine Highway Patrol vehicle that indicated the parking lot was full. We were invited to park on the shoulder of 102A and to walk in to see the...More
We enjoyed going off the beaten path to find this lighthouse, we enjoyed the climb down and scramble over the rocks, even though were were on the edge of a Hurricane and it was torrential. The only problem is, after seeing many lighthouses on our...More
Such a lovely little scene - only a short walk (including stairs) from the car park - but for those with mobility difficulties, an unobstructed view of the lighthouse requires you to go down onto the rocks.

This lighthouse is one of the driving factors as to why we came to Maine. I saw a picture of it a few years ago and wanted to see it in person. The parking lot is small. Be prepared to wait a bit for a...More
