  • To reach the lighthouse is a hike of about two miles. I personally do not recommend wearing flip flops or sandals as the road is sandy and rocky and it is harder to walk the two miles. Once there you will be rewarded with a superb view of the towering lighthouse, which can be climbed for a small fee. You can buy soft drinks and snacks at the lighthouse.
  • If you live lighthouses , this is one to visit . Our Local bed & breakfast gave us a $2 off coupon to visit , it is a 2 mile walk each way on level ground . It’s supposed to be gravel but the dunes have covered it up in sand in places . It’s a very doable walk . Just bring water and sunscreen. . Learned that volunteers take turns for two weeks as inn keepers , running the light house. They were all so friendly and informative. Has extensive information and displays for Michigan lighthouses , a video to watch then you get to climb the 140 steps to the top and take in the breathtaking view. They have a wonderful gift shop and water and soda for purchase .
