If you like hiking, ocean views and ocean access, this is the place. A wilderness type park in the heart of the city, this park is not an easy walk, but has steepish trails with roots and rocks.

If you enjoy nature and easy hikes, but don't want to experience thousands of people, this is the place to go to. The atmosphere is decidedly more relaxed and slower paced and the views can't be beat. If you go on a weekday, it would...More

Don't get me wrong--there's nothing bad about this little walk but it wasn't off the charts wonderful. I guess I've just been spoiled as there was a time I likely would have thought this was great. Certainly it was a lovely walk and some nice...More

This park had a lot going for it. It wasn't crowded, it had nice trails and beautiful views. Lighthouse Park looks very much like Acadia Park in Maine. Lots of trails and rocks to climb on and over. Wildlife swims nearby, if you stop and...More
