This was such a beautiful spot, hidden away on a secluded cliff and across 2 suspension bridges. The lighthouse is in full working order, you cannot go up to the light but can go inside and view a small exhibition.
The lighthouse is only open...More
If you arrived at the Golden gate you can push another little bit and you can reach this really nice place. It is interesting how it is made and the way to pass is funny, a little cave in the rock and a really funny...More
My wife and I have visited this lighthouse several times in years past, but not for over a dozen years, and we forgot about the very limited hours it is open. They are currently posted as Sunday and Monday 12:30-3:30 pm, but I see that...More
The lighthouse itself is about average, and its hours are pretty funky (12:30 – 3:30 Sa-M), but it can also be closed these times due to weather conditions. The good news is that the drive to the lighthouse is amazing, so you can’t be too...More

Sorry for taking so long to answer! It's steep in one part, but definitely doable at a slow pace. It is paved up to the tunnel entrance, the tunnel has a paved part in the middle with rocks and dirt on the sides (it's kind of narrow and not well illuminated (like a tunnel LOL), once you get out of the tunnel it's basically packed dirt. We went on a nice winter day after some rain, I pushed my son's stroller all the way without a problem, just avoided all the puddles after the tunnel.
The lighthouse is ONLY open Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 12:30 to 3:30pm and only if there's good weather.
