Easy gravel trail up to the lighthouse with a great view of the bay. A more woodsy trail loops around to the top too. Can get busy on a nice weekend and the parking lot is small, so you might have to wait to get a space.

GREAT hike. Very easy, as it follows a paved road and dirt path directly to the lighthouse.

Easy walk and great views along the way, parking is an issue. Not enough parking and everyone parking illegally got a ticket, better get there early. Very nice spot out at the lighthouse, very peaceful until the drone Air Force showed up. Noisy little buggers. MD Park Service should not allow.

Was a cute and great little trail. Was muddy so I didn't get to bring my dog, but it was very foggy when we went so it was super cool seeing everything look very eerie! Great and recommend for people first starting out!
