began operation in 1909 and, despite many threats to its preservation, continues to serve sailors today. The state historic park that houses the lighthouse boasts several historical buildings and wide Pacific Ocean views. You can access the light station buildings via two walks. The easier of the two starts at the south end of the parking lot and is paved. The dirt path located at the north end traverses grassland and coastal prairie. By the lighthouse, you can find three restored lightkeeper homes, one of which has been transformed into a period museum. Its artifacts and displays illustrate the lighthouse's history and provide a glimpse of local history.

This was a great place to visit a little ways off the highway but worth the side drive. Be ready for a decent walk down a paved road to get there unless you have a handicap placard then you are allowed to drive down the road and end up around 100 yards from the light station. It is very well set up for handicap and disabled. They do ask for a donation to go into the light station but no required. There is a nice very small museum and gift shop inside. My family and i had a great time.
Long walk to the lighthouse, but worth the trip. You can also rent the keepers houses, which seems nice! Lots of trails along the cliffs and views are incredible!
