My wife and I are looking at visiting all the land based lighthouses in Michigan. This lighthouse is just one of a few memorial lighthouse in Michigan. It also is the only light house in the United States made of granite. Unfortunately vandalism has made it necessary to put a fence up around it. It is unique and easy to get to lighthouse.

Was curious to visit, having read that this is one of only a few marble lighthouses in the entire nation. The architecture is unique, however visiting is underwhelming ... The lighthouse looks run down and not well cared for, much like many other parts of Detroit. This would be a stunning location for some upgrades to the park to include well groomed paths and trails and a more comprehensive visitors area with historical information about the lighthouse. Visit if you are a lighthouse buff, otherwise there may be better ways to spend your time on Belle Island.

Nice walk and view, the lighthouse is surrounded by a metal spike fence and the grass is extremely overgrown, I think it is a shame, still a nice walk and view.

Located on the far Northern tip of Belle Isle. Take a narrow winding pathway to find this. You are allowed to walk it's perimeter.

Totally unpaved trail from the parking area but it's worth it. It's gated and locked but it's still beautiful. It's confusing to find as it's on the main strip almost at the end of the circle, not by the Conservatory or on Inselruhe, as shown on maps. Also visit the Carillon Tower (pictured in last 2 photos).
