  • Lighthouse is awesome although fenced in and lawn not manicured in the slightest. Can't walk up to the fence to get close enough for photos even. The picnic tables are out in the flooded water, you can't read the info signs, the trails you see here on the map are BOTH GONE, and there's a desperate attempt at a makeshift gravel trail (nice and wide) that leads PAST (not up to) the lighthouse, AND RIGHT TO THE WATER'S EDGE! It is beautiful. BUT TURN BACK AND GO THE SAME ROUTE TO RETURN. The stingy golf course barricaded the end of the trail around the lake. You CANNOT get through. Lots of cool bugs, flowers, and NOT a lot of ivy - very cleaned out trails. Excellent views the entire way! Lots of runners, bikers, dog walkers, and young adults! Not many kids - no bathrooms way out there. No water either. Be prepared.
  • Neat little hike out to here. Keep going past to the water for a great place to relax and watch barges go by.
