You don't need a lot of time to stop here, but the views are gorgeous and well worth seeing. A short walk to the lighthouse, plenty of parking=great time! We stayed in Rockland and it's not far away at all.

We were here during the off season. No snow but still chilly. Nothing was open but the main gate but we still enjoyed stopping and hiking up to the views. It's so classically Maine!

This was a fun stop before headed to Breakwater Lighthouse. Beautiful views and not a bad walk to the lighthouse!

We visited this lighthouse, after a short walk from the parking area. Once there you can climb up into the top by way of stairs and a ladder. The person working there was very knowledgeable about the lighthouse and the area and shared her knowledge...More

This was one on the Maine midcoast challenge. This was our first time to this lighthouse. There is a ramp and then quite a few, maybe 50 steps to get to the lighthouse. There are beautiful views going to the lighthouse and also from the...More

Interesting lighthouse and great views. You can't go in the lighthouse, but you can stand right next to it. The walk there is not bad from the parking lot and there's not too many steps. Believe me, it's worth it. Stop by the gift shop...More

A very nice light house. It is a bit of a walk down a dirt path and the road to the parking lot is VERY bumpy and bouncy. Not much room for many people to take pictures. A lovely visit on a warm inland day.

Beautiful little light with great views from the bluff. Well kept and very scenic. We loved this light at sunset and recommend it to anyone but it may not be very accessible to people who cannot walk well or are in a wheelchair.

This area, according to legend, was named by native Indians because the rock outcropping supposedly looks like an owl. I have to say I have walked the lighthouse area, flown over it and sailed past it and I can not see an... More

We took our dog up - - didn't see any signs saying they are prohibited. Please note though that space is at a premium up there so don't take you pooch if there are many people around.
