If you can't get great images at this lighthouse you should have your camera confiscated! Wonderful setting minutes from Rockland. Well worth the bike ride or drive. Nice little museum nearby.

Nice short hike to lighthouse with gorgeous views. The day we went we even got to go up in the lighthouse.

The short 3-minute hike to the lighthouse from parking provides sweeping views of the nearby channels and islands. The whole setting is just amazing. However, the lighthouse is quite small. There was a lineup when I visited and I did not bother getting in.

Nice views of the shore on a clear day. You should expect a little bit of an uphill walk to get there, plus the stairs up to the lighthouse itself. The volunteer was letting people inside, but there was a line building on the stairs when I arrived (around 11:15 on a Sunday morning). I decided not to go in. There was a small exhibit in the main building (you pass through the gift shop first) with some antique photos.

There are very nice views of the water here, and the lighthouse itself is very nice. You can climb up right to it and walk around it. The problem I had was that the only places to get a good view of the lighthouse were on the steps leading up to it, which aren't wide and thus not a good place to stop and admire the view. If you like lighthouses you should definitely visit, I just wasn't as enamored with this one as I was with others.
