Make sure to also go up the pillboxes to the left of the lighthouse lookout, very cool. Also, we didn’t know about the tide pools but you should check those out while you’re there.

Completed this trail several times, the main paved portion to the lookout point and the traverse to the bunker which does have some great views. Second trip occurred when the lighthouse was under renovation/painting. Now it's all complete but really off-limits.
