    Super foggy day.....mostly. the hike from US 101 was such an amazing hike. Not terribly challenging and INCREDIBLE views. Well maintained walkways, and slick spots have had straw added to help a bit. A lot of pop-out trails to take pictures or to just take in the majestic views. The Lighthouse was a great landing spot to get ready for the hike back. We milled around for about an hour and we are glad we did, the fog lifted. Definitely worth a bit of your day.

    This is one of our favorite stops in the Florence area. The beach is nice. In areas of the beach there are black stones, fun to walk on. If you are there during low tide you can view tide pools. Today we saw a star fish, many seanimony, mussels and hermit crabs. The walk up a path and you are at the lighthouse. Truly a very nice visit!

    An absolutely beautiful and unexpected stop on our coastal drive. Highly recommend spending any amount of time here, from a quick photo stop to several hours of hiking (like we did). The lighthouse is charming, and if you are lucky you’ll visit when the weather is gloomy and winds whipping. It made for an adventure. The trail up and over to the beach was wet and muddy, but would be great in dry weather.

    Access/turn to the lighthouse parking area while heading south on 101 can get confusing. Google maps did not get this one correct however after you park and start hiking it’s wonderful. Elevated trail, takes about 30-45mins depending on speed and number of stops one makes to enjoy the ocean views that change at every turn. Highly recommend walking up to then lighthouse. On your way up you get to see the lighthouse keeper’s house and read interesting historical facts about the lighthouse and it’s surrounding area. Great place to enjoy ocean view, observe birds and also discover different kinds of flora.
