You'll have to wait until low tide to check out this ancient lighthouse! This is a fun excursion from Highway 101 to a very old lighthouse that you can only access at low tide when a land bridge emerges to the lighthouse island. Make sure you wear proper footwear as you may have to hop over driftwood and slick rocks to make it to the island.

Not a hike or really much of a walk. But it is a point of interest in the area with awesome views of the coast line and Crescent City harbor. #268

Be sure to check the tide table. Can't get to the lighthouse at high tide
