Rocky walk to get to the lighthouse. Amazing ocean views. Not crowded at all midweek in the summer.

Very nice short walk. Great views of Portland from the rocks surrounding the lighthouse. Good for all skill levels, kids, dogs, etc.

Love being able to walk along the granite rocks all the way to lighthouse. Really cool to be able to get up close to the lighthouse. Great views.

Great place to come hang out for a few hours. Though the trail itself is short, there's plenty to do in each direction. Explore the fort, walk up to the lighthouse, walk on the beach to collect rocks and shells, sit on the many benches on scenic points to observe sailboats swaying slowly on the water. I went early morning (6 30 AM) and saw several dogs playing, kids digging in the sand, people strolling with coffee. Definitely a great place to take visiting family/friends for a quieter taste of the area waterfronts.
