I've visited this lighthouse many times and its probably my favorite. Comfortable walk up the hill, past the bed and breakfast and up to the lighthouse. Beautiful views and extremely serene. One of my "must do's" when passing by. Love, love, love it!

Picturesque, well kept lighthouse with informative tour by friendly and knowledgeable volunteers. Tour includes the interior all the way up to the light and lenses (for those who can handle going up the spiral staircase.) Guide explains the history and features of this landmark. Great views along the walk to it from the parking area. Day parking fee was $5. Tour is free but donations are suggested as they help with the upkeep of the property. There is a nice view of a lovely bridge and beach access from the parking area.

I love lighthouses, and this one is lonely and beautiful. It makes for a great spot to watch the ocean, and a nice backdrop for a picture.

(Don't pay attention to the "date visited" info - I've been many times, but Tripadvisor forces you to pick a specific date for some idiotic reason.)

When traveling the Oregon Coast, you most definitely Must see the Lighthouses! This one has great access, fantastic views, and more. Stop by and check it out!

Interesting history. We enjoyed visiting the museum and learning more about the people that lived and worked at the lighthouse.
