I am planning to take a hike the lighthouse! How many miles is it from the gatehouse, one way? And how strenuous, 1-10? And how long did it take? I am an avid hiker and a marathon runner, but I like to be well informed and prepared. Thank you.
Thank you! I walked it on the beach Saturday 10.22! It was a beuatuful day, 4 hours round trip.
The trip from the gatehouse to the light is nearly 6 miles. The route is almost all soft sand, so while not hilly, can be strenuous. Not being a hiker, I'd drive it, but if you stick to the beach and walk the shoreline where the sand is harder, you should be ok.
