We were delighted to find a pretty and accessible (for my husband's motorized wheelchair) path to the lighthouse. While the lighthouse was under repair and thus not exactly a scenic wonder, there were many pretty views of the coast. Once at the lighthouse, my son and I could take another path, not wheelchair accessible, to additional viewing points and ramblings through the lovely northwest trees and foliage.

I was looking forward to seeing the "most photographed lighthouse on the Oregon Coast" and made the short walk uphill to get some good photos myself. No signs at the bottom of the trail where you have to pay to park led me to believe that the lighthouse was entirely covered in a giant black tarp. There were many disappointed travelers up there. The bonus is that the views of the coast line are spectacular. There is also a nice little beach by the parking lot and public restrooms.

Nothing compares to the Oregon Coast. Simply beautiful and challenging enough to inspire. I can't wait to go back.

The lighthouse is currently closed, and wrapped in plastic. Add to this being asked to pay $5 to park, and its best to save time and carry on driving.

The lighthouse is closed for this year for renovations. Not much to see with it covered over for the work.
