We are not much for the lighthouse thing, but the walk and terrain was most interesting. Going down near the sea on the rocks was fun. Their is a high variance in the rock types, so it was interesting from a geological perspective also. Outside areas are dog friendly. A good walk and climb.
The lighthouse itself is unremarkable but the coast like is memorable. Trail that exits the PL heart the restrooms has two options. One trail is rustic and traverses along the coast wit remarkable views and multiple access points. The other is the steps that go down to the water with a dry nice lighthouse view. Not handicap accessible to these two sites. Paved path to other side of light house is accessible. Visit is highly recommended for access to water and views.
