Hiked the trail from the park to the lighthouse. View was outstanding. Docents at the top were friendly, helpful and provided a lot of historical information about the lighthouse and the area.Even offered to take our picture in front of the lighthouse which we accepted.

We hiked the Hobbit trail to the lighthouse. It’s a 1.5 miles hike to the lighthouse then 1.5 back to the trailhead. Not much parking. The view from the lighthouse was great but the light was not on as maintenance is being done

I would expect not but the views and sounds of the ocean should be enough to keep you engaged.
