  • The drive to Cabot Head is scenic. I wish we were able to stop and take some pictures! The light house is cute - I couldn't take that many great pictures at the light house because of the glass. There's a small trail as well. Be careful of poison ivy and snakes. Also, your car will be dirty from the dirt on the ride there and back.
  • I try to make it a yearly tradition to cycle to the lighthouse from a local campground. If you visit during the busy summer weekends be prepared to park alongside the road as there is limited parking. This is an operating and active lighthouse, Someone is available to answer your questions throughout the day.
  • One of the few historical light houses you can walk through. Beware there are lots of biting flies, bring spray. Long gravel road along the water edge. Stop for a photo.
  • A long scenic drive to the historic lighthouse. Bring toilet paper, there's no toilet except for an outhouse.
  • Well worth the drive to see this lighthouse one of few where you can get up to the top and see the great view all away around plus the gift store where you get these awesome lemon cookies, plus other sweets , drinks , etc
