Headed for the Lighthouse on winding shore road, we were surprised to suddenly be right there under the lighthouse. Liked the historic marker and the views.

Charming lighthouse not far from Falmouth or Woods Hole. We packed a picnic and ate it there. Would visit again!

You can't go into the lighthouse, so basically you stop, read the history of the lighthouse and take a photo. That's it! I have been to much better lighthouses and ones that you can actually go inside.

I didn't notice the trolley. Most people ride their bikes up there. My husband and I walked there and back from the Woods Hole Inn. The weather was nice, so we made the most of it. You can drive to the lighthouse, but there... More
