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.

Nice little walk with good views. Like others have said, come at low tide but if you do come during high tide there is also a jetty and pier near by to walk on as well.

We wandered out this way to check out the lighthouse but we caught it in high tide.

Not much of a 'trail' but beautiful views.

Cool lighthouse. Need to go at low tide to be able to get to the lighthouse.

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
